Meet Jim Cooper


"I make utilitarian works of art.  Enjoying something everyday, that was custom made for you, takes useful items to whole different level of enjoyment.  Nothing gives me great satisfaction than my clients' expression of delight when they embrace a piece made only for them.  I pride myself on turning an idea or a wish into reality."   Coop



Cooper, who is commissioned for both public and private works, has had his art exhibited and is collected privately throughout the country. One of his best-known pieces, however, can be found in Center City Park in Greensboro, North Carolina. 

Libation, the centerpiece of the park, is an 8-foot-6-inch bronze fountain comprised of two containers continuously brimming over. While his larger works are primarily iron, Cooper works in several different type of metals.

Cricket’s Cove is where metal artist and blacksmith Jim Cooper runs the blacksmith shop & forge and helps out whenever needed on his wife’s organic permaculture operation. He spends his time at the anvil as often as possible.
