YMSF is a design and craft collaboration between Yvonne Mouser and Stella Fluorescent. Their studio is a creative merging of each artist's expertise, from fashion to furniture and beyond. Through the use of wide ranging materials in sometimes disparate pairings their work is an object exploration of scale, sculpture and utility.
Tiersa and Yvonne first met over a decade ago during a textiles class while students at California College of the Arts. When they reconnected years later, it was with the intention of a creative exchange, which has since evolved into continued conceptual and material experiments of an ongoing partnership.
Yvonne Mouser is a San Francisco based artist, designer, and builder with an independent studio and creative practice that spans furniture, product, sculpture, and experience. In addition to YMSF, she is also co-founder of Thought for Food, an interdisciplinary collective focused on food and the artifacts associated with eating, and New Factory, a design studio and workshop. Her work is included in private collections and has been exhibited throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and internationally at venues including the Salon Del Mobile (Milan), the Museum of Craft and Design and the Museum of Craft and Folk Art (San Francisco), the Headlands Center for the Arts (Sausalito), COPIA (Napa), and the Sam and Alfreda Maloof Foundation for Arts and Crafts (Alta Loma). Yvonne received her BFA from California College of the Arts in 2006, where is now an occasional instructor and regular critic in the Furniture Design program.
Stella Fluorescent is a San Francisco based collaborative design studio co-founded by Tiersa Nureyev and Erik Hilburn that focuses on making beautiful, thoughtful objects that take the form of fashion accessories, jewelry, and textiles.
