"Larry is an artist who defies categorization because his approach to creativity is constantly evolving. While working primarily with wood, Larry creates both fine and functional art that embraces a wide range of themes, from nature-scene architectural motifs to stand-alone abstract sculptures. Many residents of Sante Fe, New Mexico and Aspen, Colorado have collected his work during the forty years he has been a professional sculptor.
Some of Larry's most notable accomplishments in recent years include a monumental tree sculpture commissioned by Joshua Creek Ranch in Boerne, TX. The entire story is documented on our blog page. The Fly Fisherman Tree Sculpture commissioned by the town of Basalt is a favorite with locals in the Roaring Fork Valley, and the memorial sculptural bench in front of the Woody Creek Tavern is one more original Lefner.
Larry also has developed his own unique method of sculpting which is a composition of colorful hardwoods. We call it Mosaic Sculpture. It is a technique created by Larry alone. Sometimes we describe it as 'mixed wood' sculpture. People think that these sculptures are painted, but the variety of colors actually belong to the different types of woods. These works of art are truly amazing to behold."
Larry is available by appointment and welcomes commissions for fine art and architectural enhancements, such as mantles, doors and entrance-ways.
