We recently paid a visit to the home and studio of Andrew and Sarah Wilson, where Andrew paints and Sarah writes. In advance of Andrew's upcoming show at YIELD, we talk a little bit about process, place, and inspiration.
If you follow us on Instagram, you've likely seen some photos of our house renovation. Last summer, Rachel and I bought a true fixer-upper and have spent the past year remodeling to make the place our own. The house was in terrible shape, but we loved the location and had confidence that the structure was sound.
Yield founders Andrew Deming and Rachel Gant are partners in business and in life. Crucial to their enduring relationship– forged while at California College of the Arts– is an emphasis on shared principles of design, not to mention a deep appreciation for architecture and coffee.
Last week, we set out to create some new improved packaging for our keychains, so we designed a new box and turned to Ryan Tempro, our operations guy and in-house letterpress printer, to print the pieces.
Right around the time that Rachel and I packed up and moved Yield from San Francisco to St. Augustine, Ty Williams was making his way from Los Angeles to build a house in St. Augustine's historic Lincolnville district. Even though Ty and I had some overlapping time at Flagler College, we didn't get to know each other until having a parallel experience of resettling in St. Augustine after years in California.
Last week we started shipping our new Ring Wall Mounts, wall mounted wooden rings designed specifically to hold our 8" Spun Planters and Bowls. They're of course more versatile and able to hold most any planter that's roughly 8" in diameter, as well as throws, coats, etc.
