Handmade South Dakota: Artist Clark Martinek of Tough and Twisted
Working with metal gives artist Clark Martinek the power to harness some of the oldest art techniques known to man. In search of new and different ways to work with metal, he met a master blacksmith and it was then that he found blacksmithing was an aspect of iron that would change his life forever. Clark is currently a full time artisan blacksmith and has been working with metal in various ways for 19 years. For the last 10, he has worked side by side his lovely wife Charola to build and run the successful iron art company, Tough and Twisted.
