Robbie Schneider is based in Scotland and works with stone, wood, and bronze and other materials using text as both language and form, exploring possibilities beyond the purely functional purpose of traditional inscription.
Robbie studied sculpture at Camberwell and Byam Shaw Art Schools and later specialised in lettering. Robbie exhibits widely but the majority of his work has been made to commission and includes many public and private projects. The discipline of working to commission and the stimuli that clients bring to a project compliments the freedom and experimental possibilities of independent work; each inform and inspire the other. Robbie’s work can be found from Canterbury Cathedral in the South to Shetland in the far North.
