Chuck Dodson was an architect turned sculptor and was a resident artist at the Grove House in Coconut Grove, FL. He earned much national attention after being featured in Playboy Magazine in the 1970's. His sculpture's were predominantly of female nudes and erotica and he often used his wife Danielle, a retired ballerina as his muse. His medium was a closely guarded secret, dense and durable, concrete like with flakes of iron oxide.
