From 1931 to 1934 Larson traveled to other glass factories. In 1934 he settled on a farm in Vineland. He built a furnace in his back yard, referring to it as Larson Glass, and produced free blown glass. Larson also used some Durand molds that were owned by Philip Glick, an antique dealer in Clayton.

Larson also made paperweights. He had made a crimp for an upright rose paperweight. Larson paperweights were never sold to the public. They were only sold to antique shops.
