The idea of this blog at it’s inception was to use it as a journal, for reflection and sharing. These intentions fell by the wayside in lieu of doing, making, creating. It happens, priorities slide around, transform and change places, all the time. But that was then, and in this NOW the journal is born again, and it’s as good a time as ever because there is sooo much to tell.
First what is new:
Our modular jewelry. The Vestige Collection is the first in what will be an ongoing offering of magnetic bracelets and necklaces. Each collection will feature new materials highlighting innovative textile techniques and exciting collaborations with local makers. This collection features a selection of our favorite vintage, and dead-stock textiles from past collections. It will be available in our online shop in the next 2 weeks and selected colors are currently available in all SF stockist's stores.
And then our upcoming collaborations:
We are working with dyer and textile artist Sierra Reading on a vegetable dyed modular jewelry collection. Think ombre with the grey of oak galls and blues of indigo.
We are collaborating with artist Alexis Arnold on work that explores the synthesis of concrete, porcelain, gold, and silk.
We are devising a small home collection with Jeanette Au that features knitted and vegetable dyed wool, shag and sparkles.
because our last collaboration and collection; Herringbone Nevelson was so enjoyable and rich with ideas, Yvonne Mouser and Stella Fluorescent are starting a new venture. The name is YMSF (our initials respectively). Our focus will be on exploring the realms of scale, sculpture and utility while continuing to marry and find relationships between disparate materials. Expect more wood, metal and textiles in all shapes and sizes.
Lastly, upcoming events:
We will be at Industrious Life in Dogpatch, October 23rd for a show featuring 4 designers/artists making work in SF. More information to come soon!
We will also be at the SF Made Holiday Fair at it’s new home at California College of the Arts December 12th.
AND THAT IS ALL! FOR NOW
