Ohio artist Glen Taylor (before). Lengths of rusted barbed wire tie two halves of a teacup, sharp spikes line a flower-painted saucer, and torn cutlery piles up in messy assemblages reminiscent of the aftermath of a dinner party. In the past few months, Taylor’s repaired procedures have grown in size and scope, from single portion dishes patched up with jeans to full-fledged tables for eight.

In a note to Colossal, the artist announced that he was in the middle of preparing for an exhibition this fall, and you can keep an eye out for details about that exhibition on Instagram.
