Johnnie "Velour" Gibson found his passion for pottery at an early age and has developed his own modern style. Johnnie is a graduate of Otis College of Art and Design where he studied graphic design but his passion always remained in the ceramic arts.
Johnnie has been inspired by the tribal callings of the tiki gods as well as the siren’s song of the island wahines. His background in graphic design allows him to create the intricate patterns of unglazed ceramics. His use of clean lines and modern design remind us of a time of simpler pleasures.
