Rhodes is a Seattle, Washington-based sculptor, stonemason, entrepreneur, and scholar of stonework world-wide, Richard Rhodes was an apprentice as stonemason in Siena, Italy after graduating at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. As the first non-Italian admitted into Siena’s ancient masonic guild in more than 726 years (operative branch of the Freemason’s, heirs to the cathedral builders of Europe), he is known throughout the sculpture and stone community as the “last apprentice.”  It was during his guild training that he first encountered the Sacred Geometries and the Sacred Rules of Bondwork, foundational knowledge from the 4,000-year tradition of stone expression.  Though now branching into other media such as cast bronze, Rhodes credits his guild training as the major influence in his sculptural practice.

A nationally acclaimed lecturer and educator, Richard has twice addressed the national conventions of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the Association of Professional Landscape Designers. He has also delivered a five-lecture educational series to the Institute of Classical Architecture in both New York and San Francisco, and lectured to the Building Stone Institute and many public and private universities.
