Nick Moen is a designer and studio artist with a background in ceramics. In 2016, Nick started The Bright Angle, a collaborative handmade design studio in Asheville NC. Nick’s focus is on bridging the gap between design and craft by using technology to create tools to refine his studio practice. Nick earned a degree from Alfred University with a focus on ceramic design and materials. He eventually settled in Asheville, North Carolina where he began his career as a studio potter. Over the course of six years Nick drove to forty eight states in a Prius selling pottery, teaching workshops and exhibiting work in galleries. Forming The Bright Angle was a response to his passion for working in a collaborative environment with highly skilled craftspeople to produce well-designed handmade things to share and cherish.
