Our Clients Say it Best
While we were designing our new pool, we went to Larry to see about custom tiki torches. Larry's sculpture has proved to be addictive; he created custom pathway lights and a gorgeous original Red Ginger outdoor shower as well as the bamboo tiki torches. Larry and his family delivered the sculptures in a timely and professional manner and really made us feel part of the Padilla Ohana. We look forward to having one of their gates as well! –Susie Armstrong and Keith Marzullo
Larry, Thank you for the beautiful sculptures you have done for us both for our home on Maui as well as our home on the east coast.The "Kiawe" front gate and the decorative "Lotus Blossom" gates of stainless steel, copper and brass are exquisite! They are equally at home in both locations.–Sheila and Richard Schlesinger
