JB Bradshaw & Jesse Mohon

Hello Fusion 2017; my name is JB. I grew up in Southern Utah working at my grandfather’s equine veterinary clinic and started college intent on following his career. Oddly enough, that was the same time I found my passion for hats and let it carry me on my own path. I was lucky enough to apprentice under a local hatmaker for a season, and everything I do today grew from how involved I became in that experience. At 19, I’m quite possibly the youngest to enter as a hatmaker this year, but it’s an exciting opportunity that has come my way. I’ve worn hats since I can remember - and traveling with rodeo I had a knack for being the “fix my hat” guy. Eventually, it turned into a search for knowledge and learning that has taken me more places than I could’ve imagined. The hat I built to enter has been a collaboration from entry to finish between leatherworker Jesse Mohon and I. I do the work that I do because it’s something that never ceases to fascinate me. No matter how much I learn about hatting as an art, there’s always more to integrate and experiment with.

My name is Jesse Mohon. Born and raised in the Oklahoma reservations, I learned leather work from my father and hours of trying things on my own. I have been doing leather work since I was 8 years old. Aside from being a bovine beautician, I enjoy camping and mountain climbing. The western lifestyle has entranced me since day one and in the industry I will stay. 

Thank you and God Bless
