Originally from Bulgaria but established in Canada since 2004, Orlin Stoyanov has been passionate about ceramics for many years. A pottery teacher since 2015, Orlin draws inspiration from some of the great Japanese masters as he explores the various shapes and textures while continuing to learn new techniques.
The name STOI comes from the diminutive of Orlin’s last name. “Stoy” in Bulgarian means “stop”. The practice of ceramics is a time where we agree to stop and give ourselves time to create.
