We first introduced you to Carl Pendergrass of Carl's Copper a couple years back.

Now, we're showing you his new approach to creating copper sculptures and how he's helping a Chattanooga teen become a copper smith.

It's been a few years, since we checked in with Carl Pendergrass.

This time he's showing us his new creations and his new 16-year-old apprentice, Jake Garner.

"There are far and few in between young people that are really interested in learning an art" says Carl.

It's an art that should not be taken lightly at least according to Carl.
