Esperanto by Mark Weinstein features simple geometric patterns crafted from hand-finished metropolitan steel.
Weinstein, a professional metal artwork designer for more than 45 years, has been showcased all over the world in restaurants, popular television shows and more. For Artisan House, Weinstein has reproduced nine of his most successful mid-century modern pieces from his original line.
These designs, and more, can be seen during this week's Las Vegas Market and the fall High Point Market.
"We are dedicated to continually growing our portfolio of artists," said John Shilling, president of Artisan House.
"It's a very exclusive and extensive process, because we have set high standards to maintain our signature level of design and quality. Mark is a seasoned professional and brings a level of design experience that is unmatched. His artwork will not only astound our current customers, but will also familiarize Mark's loyal followers with our company. We look forward to this partnership growing over the years."
Weinstein first began experimenting with different welding techniques in 1957 when he began working for his father at Federal Salvage and Supply in St. Louis. He spent the next two years welding textured, metal sculptures in a shed in the corner of his father's scrap metal yard.
After selling several of his designs, Weinstein launched Marc Creates, Inc., in 1967. In need of a full-time production facility and showroom, he rented a building in downtown St. Louis. By the early 1970s, Marc Creates. Inc., was producing metal sculptures and furniture. Today, Marc Creates, Inc.'s multi-dimensional metal sculptures can be found across the globe.
