Alex Scheibner trained as a blacksmith under Guido Gouverneur in Sydney between 1994-1997. Followed by two years at Granger Forge. This led to his working in Los Angeles USA, along side Tony Swatton supplying hand forged armour and swords to Hollywood. Scheibner also completed his training as a mechanical fitter.
It was a natural progression to move towards sculpture where years of developing both his understanding of the nature of metals and his metal working skills could take on such varied applications. Scheibner's work stretches from delicate hand forged poppies to large scale, modernist, geometric stacks and public art installations.
From his purpose built workshop at Talerwin Forge in the picturesque setting of Rylstone in the Central West of NSW, Scheibner continues to diversify his art practice.
