Steve Sears bends metal. The hard stuff, … iron.
Iron doesn’t want to bend. It takes prep. It takes conditioning. It takes energy. Steve’s energy.
Steve has been bending metal for decades. He knows what he wants and how to make it happen. Most people call Steve an artisan. He calls himself, “Steve.” Bending iron is what he does, and does well. He doesn’t worry about labels. We all do what we do, whatever that may be at any given time. Maybe we are label-able, maybe not. It really doesn’t matter.
Photographing Steve was great fun. It’s always a pleasure to be with someone who derives such great satisfaction from his craft.
