He has worked on projects such as the first mechanical heart valve, the Seacliff and the Turtle, the Cruise missile project, as well as several aircraft projects for Boeing.

Larry is a self-taught artist who makes his own unique tools for crafting his scenes in bottles.  His scenes for his bottles contain hand-carved and hand-painted items that are one-of-a-kind and usually require over 100 hours of project time for each bottle. For each bottle, Larry makes wonderful custom stands that depict the scenes inside the bottles.  Larry is an avid student of history, particularly American history, and many of his bottles have depicted historical ships and events from history.
