Johnny Arvizu grew up in Douglas Arizona, a small bordertown to Agua Prieta, Mexico. Johnny began working in ceramics in 2017 at Cochise Community college, where he was introduced to soda and wood firings. It was the seemingly endless amount of exploration of these firing methods that led him to continue his love of soda firing. He later transferred to Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff Arizona, and graduated with his BFA in 2023.
