Rhiannon Scheidt is a contemporary sculptor who has been living and working in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for the past decade. The gritty, industrial environment has influenced her work as an iron caster, creating a series of relics of buildings and crumbling skylines. Her somber, abandoned structures evoke memories of personal loss and resonate with the reality of our possible, dystopian future. Her iron casting techniques were learned at East Carolina University where she earned her Bachelor of Fine Art in Sculpture with honors. Since graduation she has shown work both domestically and internationally while participating in the Mesalands Iron Casting Symposiums, Salem Art Works Artist Residencies, the biannual SLOSS iron casting conference, and the NCIIIA international. Scheidt is currently attending Alfred University for her Master of Fine Art where she is working with new materials such as glass, steel, natural fibers, and found objects where she hopes to explore the poetics of light and space in sculpture.
