Contact Larry Zarra:
Larry has been an avid woodturner since 1995. What started as a hobby quickly morphed into an artistic passion, pursuing perfection in design and excellence in the completed object. Over the past two decades he has participated in a variety of juried art shows and has been selected numerous times as a regional demonstrator at the Southwest Association of Turners woodturning symposium. His work is represented at DaVinci Artists Gallery, along with several other local venues. Larry is a member of the Houston based Gulf Coast Woodturners Association and The Woodlands based Lonestar Woodturners, both American Association of Woodturners chapters. He has also published several articles in the American Woodturner Journal.
While he is primarily self-taught, Larry has also benefited from participation in workshops with a number of world-class woodturners. During his woodturning career, he has turned over 1,300 bowls and vessels, and more than 10,000 spin tops.
Larry is a recently retired earth scientist who worked in petroleum exploration and applied research.
