Larry Frazier was a math / science major in high school, fortunate enough to have excellent math teachers who would show students the magic of Mobius strips, even though they weren’t in the text books. Besides the top-flight math teachers, the school’s literature teachers were inspiring enough that he decided to go to Liberal Arts College, rather than an engineering school. This small private school required all students to give art a try. Without any previous art interest, he was tossed, at random, into the school’s sculpture’s class, and fell in love. Sculpture was his focus that school year, and he went on to complete a Bachelor of Fine Arts at San Francisco Art Institute.
Then the river went underground, surfacing a little, if at all, for quite a few years. About ten years ago, the beauty of exotic woods got him back into sculpting, and then he discovered the translucence and delicacy of alabaster. From art school days on, he has enjoyed pushing materials to the limit, taking his work thinner than any experienced sculptor would advise.
