Boyan Moskov is a New Hampshire based ceramicist who likes to experiment. Originally from Bulgaria, he studied art in Troyan from the ages 13 -19. He always enjoyed working with ceramics, and when he graduated, there were good jobs in production pottery, where he started his career. He worked with several production companies and eventually started his own.
In 2007 he moved to America with his wife, to her hometown in New Hampshire. With production pottery, he didn’t feel like he was expressing himself artistically, so he decided to focus on sculptural pieces that allowed him to experiment more.”I like experiment all the time. After I finish a piece I’ll pick it apart – perhaps I like the clay body, but not the glaze; or I like the shape but not the texture; or I want it to be bigger to really show the detail. Then I start working on the next piece and I focus on the elements that I want feature. If you look at my work over time, it’s all very different, but you can see my hand in all of it. You can see how the different elements transform over time, change, and sometimes come back into focus.”
Moskov works out of his home studio in Contoocook, NH and studied art at Troyan Art School, Troyan, Bulgaria; Sofia Art Academy, Sofia, Bulgaria; and Lunevad, Linkshopping, Sweden. He has exhibited nationally and internationally and was the featured artist and cover of Ceramics Monthly.
