Save the future
for the young bulls. Johnnie Larson was a student at USU that thought he'd be better off building a chamber kiln and making pots. Johnnie was a huge help at my last firing of the double wide. That was Johnnie trying to split the kon-tiki log. Looks like he would go to any length to get pots made even making them in a upstairs barn.
He is digging his own clay, processing his glaze materials and firing a wood kiln. This young bull ought to have yunomi's in the AKAR show. Check out that water jar- it's a killer! Can't imagine having that kind of aesthetic at 20 years old. He's going to be a good one. I need to send him my young bull old bull story annually. Go get em' Johnnie!!!
