If I were to sum up a singular word that Johnny embodies entirely, it is “Authentic.” His values are revealed in his lifestyle choices from his shoes, gloves and jacket to the plates he hand-crafts to serve his food on. Everything has a story and a history and a good and honest vibration and Johnny considers it all. It matters to him and his lifestyle reflects this.

Johnny Ortiz and the / Shed Project

Johnny Ortiz is committed to place and mindfulness, and so is living this rich life in Northern New Mexico: off-grid, raising animals and growing food. He shares this with the community by hosting / Shed: an intimate monthly dinner. At these dinners, a small group is served food grown here, now out of ceramics made of local clay, dug and fired in the traditional way by Johnny himself. What / Shed is "trying to do is exemplify a way of life that has been lost in our own way. An extension of the thought that one can live simply in unison with their environment, rather then being separate, blurring the lines between my work and life."
