Ingram Allen
Art with handmade paper from 135 different plants
from 14 places in Taiwan

This 256-page book in English and Chinese is the result of the author’s 18 months in Taiwan as a Fulbright Scholar and artist in residence sponsored by Fulbright Foundation/Foundation for Scholarly Exchange and the Taiwan Council for Cultural Affairs. The author lived and worked in 14 different areas of Taiwan including Taipei, Yilan, Guandu, Penghu, Kinmen, Pingtung, Liu Kuei, Chaiyi, Tainan, Miaoli, San Zhi, Hualien, Taitung and Lanyu. The artist used local plants to make handmade paper for 55 artworks reflecting her experience of each time and place. The book provides information about the unique culture of each place and tells how to make paper from the135 different plants used in Taiwan. The 7-1/2” (19 cm) square-shaped book contains many color photographs taken by artist’s husband, Timothy S. Allen, who accompanied her on this journey. Photos of the papermaking process, the 135 papermaking plants and handmade paper created from each plant, the artworks created and the cultural experience of Taiwan are included in the book. This book is for anyone interested in knowing more about Taiwan, plants, papermaking, art and cross-cultural experiences.

Bird Sculptures Available

Selection of Birds by Jane Ingram Allen

The birds are now being offered for $250 each. If you purchase four, you will get a fifth bird free. 

These bird sculptures have been exhibited in my series of "Bird Watching" installations begun in 1997. These installations have been in such places as on the bus shelters along the main street of Utica, New York, at the 1997 Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition at Empire-Fulton Ferry State Park, Brooklyn (at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge) and at Castellane Gallery - Outdoors, on an abandoned barn along Route 46 in Munnsville, NY, at the state capitol plaza in Providence, RI, on the Mino Bridge in Mino City, Japan, on the rooftop at Visual Studies Workshop sponsored by Pyramid Arts Center, Rochester, NY, on signs at Ithaca Commons, Ithaca, NY, and at the Astoria Hotel courtyard in Kathmandu, Nepal. I have also done birds of Taiwan for several "Bird Watching" installations in Taipei since coming to Taiwan in 2004 with the Fulbright grant.

The over 500 bird sculptures I have made represent species of common birds found in North America and in foreign countries. The sculptures are made of handmade paper over a wire armature and painted with acrylics and coated with polyurethane for durability. They are suitable for outdoor installation as well as indoors. Each bird is approximately 18" x 24" x 12"; some are slightly smaller and some a little larger. To order, please specify what species of bird you would like. The examples shown here will give you some idea of the varieties available. The sales price for a bird sculpture is $250 each plus $25 for shipping and handleing. Please send an e mail message to info@janeingramallen.com with your order and complete mailing address.  Payment can be made with a check or money order or with a credit card or direct bank payment through PayPal.  Please allow 4 weeks for your bird to be created.
