New Hampshire Traditional Arts & Folklife Listing

Bob Taylor
Welding & Metal Sculpture

Bob Taylor is a welder of practical things for local businesses during the working day. After hours, he turns his traditional skills to more fanciful efforts and becomes a welder of creatures large and small. He is joined my members of his family and close friends in this work and they have populated much of the township of Alstead with their fanciful creations, which include a giant praying mantis, a moose, a gargoyle, a bear, and an eagle. Bob Taylor was among the crafts people invited to represent New Hampshire’s Yankee ingenuity at the 1999 Smithsonian Folklife Festival and again at the expanded recreation Celebrate New Hampshire festival held in 2000 in Hopkinton.

Preferred activities and age groups: Demonstrations and workshops at community locations such as libraries, historic societies, fairs, festivals, and museums for all ages.

Availability: Statewide year round.
