Garland Martin Taylor
I am a commission based artist working mostly with welded steel, stainless steel and braised bronze. I specialize in making outdoor, monumental sculptures and heirloom fire pits. My studio process balances additive, subtractive and direct metal sculpting. Ive Ben known to throw into the metal a mix of feathers, leather, acrylic infused kinky hair, mossy earth, or blight resistant chestnut wood carvings. This is to say that my sculpture’s whimsical elegance coupled with my commitment to protecting black culture firmly roots my practice in Afrofuturism.
