Business Description
Mark Melonas is an artist, designer, educator and artisan. He started working in the building trades at age 14 as an assistant to a custom homebuilder in Maryland. He went on to study architecture, design and sculpture at the University of Maryland, where he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Studio Art. During his undergraduate studies Melonas began apprenticing with a fine furniture maker, where he learned traditional and contemporary furnituremaking and finishing techniques. Melonas moved to New England in 1997 to pursue a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Artisanry at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. While in New England he experimented with furniture forms, concepts and materials and began experiments with cast concrete as both a sculptural and furniture medium. The close proximity to other artisans working in various materials allowed him to learn about the traditional crafts of fibers, ceramics, and metalworking. Mark Melonas founded LUKE WORKS, Inc. in 2001 to provide clients a broad array of design solutions for custom contemporary projects. LUKE WORKS specializes in custom concrete countertops, metalwork and fine furniture in a variety of materials. Their work focuses on contemporary forms and considerate use of sustainable and alternative materials.

We had an engineer specify something based on our interpretation of the architect's design intent. The short explanation was butyl setting blocks on top of aluminum angle. Would highly recommend using an engineer to help design it. Not something to do by the seat of your pants.
