Jane Taylor -- Metal Sculptor/Folk Artist

a visit to folk artist Jane Taylor's wonderland of rusty inspiration is the perfect antidote for winter doldrums


inspiration is found everywhere you look

and creativity runs totally rampant


inside are amazing lamps and light fixtures

super sick furniture




cool accessories

and amazing artwork






I'm junk-drunk within minutes as Jane lets me pick through her vast treasure trove of supplies for some cool pieces to use in my future projects. I think this is what heaven would look like for us crazy rust-lovers!
