Masters of the Southwest
Casting a Spell
This new series on revisiting past winners of our Masters of the Southwest Award begins with concrete artisan Larry Kornegay
Larry Kornegay’s Studio provides a rare glimpse into the non-stop creative mind of a sculptor and designer who has elevated the humble concrete planter to an object d’art. Inside Kornegay Design, tucked away in the industrial district just south of downtown Phoenix, a cadre of artisans mix a proprietary formula of concrete, pour it into fiberglass models and open the molds once the concrete sets to reveal sensuous, sculptural forms.
