Bernard MOSS

Bernard MOSS

Bernard Moss was born in London to Russian emigrees who fled to the UK at the end of the 19th century to escape persecution. He began his career as a fabric designer in London after the end of the Second World War. After marriage in 1948, Bernard and his wife, the artist Moreen MOSS, moved to Cornwall. They settled in Mevagissey where he developed a career as a potter. He became famous for his slip cast moving figures and mobiles, decorated by Moreen. The couple were featured in a British Pathe news story in September 1955. In the early 1960s he switched to the traditional throwing of domestic and decorative wares. Bernard retired in 1983. He died in September 2012 aged 89, a few months after Moreen's death.
