“People say my work is very unique and beautifully done. They also ask if my cuts are done with an automated machine because of my craftsmanship. I take that as a compliment,” Taylor said.

The Arts Council is exhibiting Taylor's work at Artsy Chic Studio, 1520 Broadway Ave., which is open noon-5 p.m. Monday to Friday. To view more of his work, visit https://www.facebook.com/diligenthandsmetalworking/.
