Daniel Johnston and Kate Johnston dig most of the materials they use to make and glaze their pots. The pots are fired in a large 850 cubic ft wood-salt kiln. From digging the clay to firing the kiln they put all their effort into creating pots that have a powerful presence. It is important to them to create pots that are timeless but reflect the culture and times in which they live.
