LARRY WILLIAMSON

“Inspired by the the desert landscape that has surrounded him his whole life, Nevada-based sculptor Larry Williamson carves and creates extraordinary images out of aged pieces of wood that he finds lying on the floor of the Great Basin. His sculptures – sometimes small, sometimes as tall asĀ  a man – are fabricated of his mind and materials. Pieces of weathered pinyon, juniper and ceder, horsehair, bone, and occasionally, ceramic elements of high-fried stone ware or cast bronze are married to create objects of whimsy and pathos.”
