BIO

John has been studying & making
pottery since 1969. He studied with
Al Johnsen at UC Santa Cruz & Big
Creek Pottery. In 1974 he moved
to Gerlach to set up Planet X
Pottery. Rachel (a veterinarian in
her previous life) completes the
team. Planet X started with just the
remnants of an old homestead on
the Emigrant Trail. Over the years
studios & galleries have been built
& a beautiful oasis created.
Being totally off the grid (8 miles
from the closest power) Planet X is
run entirely off of solar, propane &
generator. Once a blank spot on
the map, Planet X has become a destination for Nevadans out
exploring the desert & for tourists
from all over the world. Stop by to
see the display of fine porcelain,
stoneware & Raku, have lunch under the ancient cottonwoods & enjoy
the quiet solitude of one of the last unspoiled areas in the West. We
have a big Open House, Show & Sale on Memorial Day weekend & in
September. If you want to be on the mailing list send us your address to:
Planet X We also go to the Candy Dance in Genoa & do a show in Reno
at Christmas.
