Charles R. Henry began his undergraduate education in Physics at the University of Pennsylvania but he soon switched to Sculpture and received his B. F. A. from the Cleveland Institute of Art and received his M. F. A. from Cranbrook Academy of Art. In 1968, he joined the faculty at Virginia Commonwealth University in the Sculpture Department where he is now retired as Professor Emeritus. This work relating Phi, Pi and the Great Pyramid to the human form is the result of 25 years of research into patterns formed in reflective sphere clusters.
Dan Pearce has a broad and deep exposure to many aspects of design and object making. Nine years of analytical work as an aerospace engineer in support of NASA was followed by sixteen years working with all aspects (from research to hands-on prototyping) of solar powered home design and construction--including co-lead instructor for UVa's prize winning entry in the First DOE Solar Decathlon. As a sculptor he is attempting to fuse technology and art in a way that satisfies both while providing a window into the lonely passion that isolates us all in our separate specialties.
