John Taylor  |  1954-  |  San Juan Capistrano, CA

Found object sculptures


When you look at John Taylor’s ships, is hard to believe that they haven’t just been pulled from the ocean floor. (OK – you can believe it, but the patina is even more amazing once you realize that many of the parts that John uses to create these intricate sculptures are pulled from computer parts and treated to look like rusty metal…no easy feat with plastic.


John is a landscape architect by trade, and spends his evenings and weekends working on his ships in his garage, while he keeps an eye on his kids playing hockey in the drive.
