"Stuart Padnos, 86, a self-taught artist and art aficionado, and senior executive vice president of the 103-year-old Padnos company [headquartered in Holland, Michigan]. When asked about his inspiration for the art, he repeated what he has always maintained, “Scrap is beautiful, and beauty is in the eye of the beholder. ”Padnos recalled that his first creation resulted from his attraction to a peculiarly shaped pipe he noticed one day in the scrap yard. “I showed it to my wife, Barbara, a watercolor artist, and she encouraged me to make something with it, ” he said. The pipe was transformed into a flagpole base at their home. Over the past 20 years, Padnos has created more than 70 sculptures from his limitless resource of scrap. "“I have repeated the tulips and the mailmen designs, but most are one-of-a-kind creations, ” he said. Padnos’ works are in the collections of the Meijer Garden and Sculpture Park, the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library and Museum, Grand Valley State University and Michigan State University, among others. He does not sell his sculptures, but occasionally contributes them for appropriate sites. The majority are located around the community of Holland. ; Color Photographs; 6 1/2 x 6 1/2; 53 pages; Soft cover has light bumping, rubbing/scuffing; tiny dark spot on side of text block.
