People frequently comment that the whimsy in Larry Marley's work stands in direct contrast to his fine art woodworking attention to detail.
Some pieces incorporate a modified marquetry technique he developed for use in turned objects. For Kinetic sculpture, he uses a variety of techniques including math, experimentation and slow motion video to observe and refine its function.
2020 will be Larry's eighth year with the Laguna Beach Festival of Arts. He has work in the Orange County Fair permanent collection. His work has shown at the Museo Museum in Anaheim and the Orange County Airport, with multiple pieces in the Kamm Teapot collection, as well as several private collections. His work has won First, Second, Third and Division at the Orange County Fair, and First Place in wood sculpture at the Indian Wells Arts festival.
