Member Spotlight: The Kessler Craftsman

Larry Pile’s craftlicious works of art are utterly mesmerizing. His stained glass pieces have an ambient glow, which sets the tone of a room perfectly, with lively colors and creative designs. Words like sensual, luminous and hot come to mind when viewing his pieces. Whoa! Cool me down!

Larry is a seasoned artist that many can learn a thing or two from, maybe three. During his life, Mr. Pile has contributed to the creative community as a painter, photographer, furniture-maker and stained glass artist.
