In 1990, Henry was appointed as Lecturer in Ceramics at The National College of Art and Design in Dublin. This post ushered in a happy and productive period, enabling him to teach, which he enjoyed very much, and to continue to develop several new phases of his own work.

The 1993 exhibition: ‘Henry Pim New Sculpture’ was organised by the Ulster Museum in Belfast, and introduced a completely new kind of work. These pieces were made in sections and assembled into composite structures that were around one metre tall. They made reference to architecture, to ‘Primitive Art’ and one critic wrote about them in the Irish Times as being ‘rich in genitalia’, (a dubious honour perhaps).

More exhibitions, and more developments followed. In 1995, a large solo show at the Galway Art Centre, entitled ‘Thoughts in the Making’ transferred to the Design Yard in Dublin, and was later featured in the Kilkenny Arts Festival and at Schloss Bruchsal near Heidelberg. Several of the pieces were wall-hung, and at the heart of this show was an installation of over 300 ceramic skulls.
