Frank Boyden was trained as a painter, printmaker and art historian but in 1968 got seduced by clay and the world of the ceramic arts. In 1972 he stopped painting and gave his full time to clay. He began the journey of learning how to incorporate drawing techniques onto vessels and other ceramic objects and this journey continues to this day. In 1984 he built the sixth anagama kiln in America and has spent the time since then perfecting the discipline of wood firing. What sets Boyden's work apart and makes it cohesive over the past 40+ years is his energetic and fluid incised drawings on vases. Boyden received Master of Fine Arts in painting from Yale University. His work is collected and exhibited internationally and he has conducted hundreds of workshops and lectures around the world.
