Dylan Cook first began working with metal at the age of 12, welding bed frames together in the hopes of building a helicopter.  The helicopter never became a reality, but the love of working with metal was born! After high school, Dylan worked in sheet metal fabrication until he was introduced to forging by Mike Riemer in 2007.  As a striker, Dylan was able to see the metal move with heat and hammer and quickly realized that it was the way he wanted to work with the material. Dylan wanted to (and still wants to) learn from as many different smiths as he could/can, and to promote the craft.  He started a special charter boarding school where the exposure to a variety is blacksmith program at a local high school where students would make functional and sculptural projects as well as installations for the schools beautification initiative.

Currently, Dylan works out of his forge in Prescott, Arizona, and teaches workshops at Pieh Tool Company, in Camp Verde, Arizona
