A great place to create: A young artist returns to his roots


John Larson discovered his passion for transforming clay into art right at home, growing up on the prairie south of Clarkfield in Yellow Medicine County.

There have been no limits on where he would go to pursue its study. He attended Utah State in 2007-08, and studied abroad in South Korea in 2008. He returned on his own to Korea in 2009 to work alongside one of that country’s most respected ceramic artists, Hyang Jong Oh.
