Larry Mobley

In addition to being a petroglyph and mosaic artist, Larry is a tile reclamation specialist. He travels throughout the United States in order to remove and preserve historical tile for museums, public intuitions, galleries, and collectors. Countless important historical tiles and mosaics are being destroyed as buildings and homes are remodeled and rebuilt. Americans must save this art medium for future generations so that they may also gain knowledge about the past through antique tile and mosaics.
