Yvonne Mouser is a San Francisco based artist, designer, and builder engaged in creative practice that spans furniture design, product, spaces, fine art, and events. 

As a designer Yvonne focuses on creating everyday objects that give meaning to experience or tell a story through their function.  They are simple, well crafted, and intentional pieces that are meant to be used. 

As an artist her work engages with the temporal nature of reality, exploring in between times flow to expose a process, reveal a fleeting moment or capture moments caught in transformation. 

Her practice is deeply rooted in the process of making, where ideas and techniques are supported by a hands on approach providing opportunities to experiment, test, and prototype, and the final results are executed with detail and craft.

Yvonne works both independently and with a diverse group of collaborators.  Her own design studio creates one of a kind objects and small run production pieces.  She is co-founder of New Factory a design studio and workshop, Thought for Food, where she focuses on the artifacts and experiences of eating, and, YMSF, a collaboration with Stella Fluorescent that explores utility, materials and scale.

Her work is included in private collections, and has been exhibited internationally and throughout the Bay Area including the San Francisco Museum of Craft and Design, the Museum of Craft and Folk Art, COPIA, the Maloof Foundation for Arts and Crafts, and the Headlands Center for the Arts.
