Since 1978 Michael Bendele has been dedicated to the exploration of forged metal. Working mainly in steel, copper and bronze, he is best known for the organic forms he uses in lighting, furniture, sculpture and architectural metal work. He continues to receive many public and private commissions, and has had extensive interactions with clients, architects, galleries and nonprofit organizations. Michael’s work may be found in both public and private collections throughout his native Ohio and the United States.


Michael began with a solid 3″ x 3-3/4″ copper cylinder and created this beautiful bowl.
