Stonemason in Kiedrich

Right behind the St. Valentinus church in Kiedrich is the studio of the "Steinmetz" (stonemason) Robert Schmidt. He displays some of his artwork here and you can also see the different kinds of stone he's working with.

Hi Nicola, this is an interesting photo, it has a kind of secret garden mood in it.

My first thought was the book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Read it? Does he ship to the U.S.? How much could shipping be...? ;)

Yaay...Home sweet home! I love the Rheingau, and Kiedrich is the best town there...But I'm biased, lol. Thanks for the pic, tho.

Thanks you all for your comments! I always love to read them!!

rob - No I haven't heard of the book so far, sounds very mysterious! I'll check if I can find it here. I'm sure he'll also ship to the US if you're willing to pay the price for it. No idea how much it would cost, probably also depends on the size of the piece...

ali - I assume that the pieces shown here are more for demonstration but I'm sure if you'd like one he could make it for you...

markus - yeah! you're welcome, but check back from time to time, there will be more coming since there is a lot more to see (well, I don't have to tell you, you know already... ) :).

I feel like an intruder in a craftsman personal workspace.

Very interesting! I love to see the local stuff. never get tired of it.

jasp - sorry, to make you feel like an intruder. But no worries, it's all fine :). This is more of a showroom that the real workspace (besides in winter it would be too cold outside for him to work there anyways). So you're welcome to take a look around :).

dp from bazainville - yes, mine too. I was surprised when I saw this face in the middle of the photo. Maybe he can help me solve the mystery I discovered with the faces/masks in Wiesbaden...

Thanks ash & jill for your nice comments!

Looks really nice Nicola. Where exactly in Germany is your town? I'd love to visit.

mark - thanks!

doogsta - the Rheingau is actually a whole region next to Wiesbaden and Frankfurt/Main. A very nice region to visit, I might add, especially in the time between Spring and Fall...

This night I didn't travel through Japan or Ireland or the US as usual, and by accident I arrived in my own backyard, where I'm exposing some work that I did during the last years, when I had the time for nasty sculptures. I'm a master and doing that since nearly 30 years now, in the 15th generation here in Kiedrich . Beside other projects I try to take influence on peoples dreams and to make thougts reality.I ship all over the world. Look for 3d-culture.de. My name is Robert Frank Schmidt, 65399 Kiedrich, Germany, Am Mühlberg 4. No mails please , but letters welcome. Yours sincere Robert
