My name is Mark Leputa and I am a glass artist and coldworker, above all else. Over the course of my career, I have grown tired of watching other professional artists and students use tools that are subpar. When I was approached by the DIAS Turnov Diamond Manufacturer (Czech) I didn’t look at the opportunity as a means to get rich quick – my main focus has always been my own artwork. As I thought about the offer, I realized it was a chance to bring high quality, sintered diamond tools to the US. More than that I wished to offer these tools to the US market for less than what is available to us coldworkers currently. I am one of you. I want to be able to get you what you need in order to create the works of art you can envision.
