Hello there strangers! Sorry we have been distant from the blog recently. Allyson is busy getting ready for her show the Lotus Eaters at Gallerie LJ in Paris and Pictoplasma in Berlin coming up in April. By the way did I mention Allyson is a warrior...FYI. I have been laying low and making new work and spending sometime healing. Allyson and I recently finished a handful of Dotties, Papercuts, and Brooches just in time for Valentines Day! These are all up on the Etsy shop ready for the swiping. We have both have also decided to take the plunge and make a website. allysonandjeremy.org. It is in its early stages and needs some fine tuning so bear with us. The website also includes our tumblrs of new work we are doing and what is inspiring us in the studio. We will still be using this blog to update people on what we are doing and continue to post about the garden, our crazy projects and journeys. The garden currently is in a dormant state. Although we still have many alive plants under our cold frames and garden cloth. Including: Lacinato Kale, Siberian Kale, Chard, Spinach, Cilantro, Leeks, Weld, Woad. We also have some areas of cover crop including some Turnip Greens and Austrian Winter Peas. We are hoping for an early spring as we are ready to let these dormant dudes bloom. It was 68 today so we opened the cold frames to give the plant some sun and air and fertilized these suckers so that they will take off in a month! We are also working on the book...and once Allyson's shows are mailed off we are devoting our time to finish this sucker. Matokie our new kitten is slowly becoming a sweet cat and we LOVE him so much! Do not worry everyone Fricky is not taking the back seat but she has some healthy competition! Much Love -Jeremy allysonandjeremy.org jeremysethtaylor.tumblr.com allysonmellberg.tumblr.com allysonmellberg.etsy.com
This blog is run by Allyson Mellberg Taylor and Jeremy Taylor. We started it as a way to share some of our doings with friends and put a fire under our butts for the book that we are currently writing together about non-toxic artist materials. This has been a passion of Jeremy's since graduate school and he has done years worth of research leading up to the writing of this book. When we met during graduate school and started sharing living/studio space and making work collaboratively it became an important part of my life and studio practice too. I can't imagine making work any other way.
