Henner Schröder grew up in West Berlin and moved to the United States in 1977. He owns and operates a large glass studio outside Seattle, where he produces his blown and cast pieces. Schröder visits rock art sites to study and record the pictographs left behind by ancient cultures, translating these images onto his sculptures. He combines images from a variety of locations to emphasize their similarities over distances of time and space.
