Many of you may have seen Corey running around in the background of the Cosanti foundry, but did you wonder what he was working on?
Corey Rosen is a Cosanti Originals Special Projects artisan. He was born and raised in Arizona and has been here most of his life except for a few years back east for college. Before he started working here, Corey had no knowledge of Cosanti and only cursory knowledge of Arcosanti—it simply looked like an interesting place to be, and he came here on a whim. This was in 2007, and his assessment was correct: it is indeed an interesting place to work.
Corey has many roles and wears many hats at Cosanti, but he says working on special projects is one of the most rewarding parts of the job. Before arriving at Cosanti, he has no interest in and knowledge of the bronze craft. This does not mean he was void of creativity—it just wasn't his first instinct. He had gone to college for economics, a seemingly unlikely background given some of the projects he has created.
