About

Ryan T. Schmidt is inspired by everyday life. He loves to create and design, driven by the impact of making this imagination into a realized form. Various sketches of shapes and concepts in sweeping arcs consisting of curvilinear, sleek lines and elegant form are made visible with his passion for art. The sketches come to life in a three dimensional sculpture with Schmidt’s combined motivation to inspire the public, acquired skills, knowledge and experience accumulated since childhood. This 31" tall by 15" x 10" wide stainless steel sculpture is mounted onto a stone base and is ready to be displayed. Size and price include the base. The finish is mirror-polish to create brilliant and complex mirrored images of organic transformation in the surface of the form that creates the contrast between existence and illusion. Movement is an important aspect of the overall form. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable US and worldwide shipping. A certificate of authenticity is included. Schmidt’s ambitious intentions are to create atmospheric, monumental sculpture with reflections of the sun or sky, movement of the clouds, and the ever-changing seasons; portrayed by the viewer for inspirational thoughts and healing. Schmidt’s creative interest started at the early age of five in Origami. Moving into painting and photography during school set a definite artistic direction. While, also learning to work with wood, metal and plastic in his father’s business of custom remodeling, landscaping, and handcrafted playgrounds. Transitioning into college, he furthered studies in photography, painting, drawing, color in design, printmaking, ceramics, and finally transitioned into sculpture. Schmidt began working in cast aluminum, later in bronze, and ultimately found the everlasting properties of stainless steel with its brilliant reflection. In 2002, he established Rykan Expedition, Inc. and started combining landscaping, water fountains and outdoor sculpture. Later, he moved to Los Angeles and spent 5 years to focus more on producing sculptures while establishing his gallery connections. Schmidt returned to his hometown in Bryant, Arkansas in 2015 to expand the production of sculptures. His mission is to share the gift of inspiration through reflection with the passion for stainless steel, and desire to build sculptures that will last generations.
