My earliest recognition as a child is when I first began school and my mother saying “Henry, do your homework & stop playing with clay”. During elementary, junior high school & high school I took classes in ceramics and art. All through my adult life I took sculpture courses. As time came closer to my retirement, I could not wait to put all my energy into creating original pieces of sculpture. My occupation was designing and creating the finest lithography & thermography for major national clients. Through the years I entered exhibitions and did rather well selling pieces. I’ve shown my work in Florida and New York.
