At what point do you discover what you want to do for the rest of your life? For Steven Cooper it was an industrial arts metal class in Junior High School. Who knew that rigid cold metal could be so yielding and beautiful. This discovery continued throughout High School with all of the art classes he could take, which made him realize that what he wanted to be was a metal craftsman.
