Michael Cooper says that he’s been “fooling around” with wood and metalworking since he was a kid and hasn’t grown up much since then. After graduating from San Jose State University and UC Berkeley with “some sort of degrees” in the 1960s, he “faked his way” as a college art teacher, teaching sculpture, 3D design, furniture design, and drawing before being purged from the system. He has somehow won numerous awards and has been encouraged to leave the United States many times to make things elsewhere. He bends wood well and often joins wood with odd bits and pieces of other materials. He has exhibited his work around Sonoma County, where he currently resides, and recently sold “something big for a lot of money.” That sculpture, Gunrunner, appeared on the back cover of Woodwork magazine in December 2007. He is also the 2009–10 Wornick Distinguished Visiting Professor of Wood Arts at CCA.
