Check out this amazing video featuring Seattle metalsmith Andy Cooperman. Andy has long been one of my metalsmithing heroes and, in recent years, a friend too. This video gives a glimpse into his studio process — it’s beautifully shot, and it’s beautiful to watch him work — but it also puts into context his recent struggles with his vision. Very powerful.
