Attended the Boston Museum School and Rutgers University where he studied under Peter Voulkos and Peter Callas, both famous masters of clay.

Raised in the Cajun South, Larson has a personal connection to ritual festivities including Mardi Gras and the mysticism surrounding voodoo. Now embracing a multitude of cultures, Larson focuses on the creation of spirited objects; his artworks are heavy with the weight of transformative powers: woven, torn, worn- through, pierced and burned. Larson has exhibited solo projects at Roger Smith Hotel, NY, Tool Analysis, Active Space, Brooklyn, Piggy Back in Boston, Massachusetts. He has participated in numerous group exhibitions across the United States and Canada
