Schmettau lives since 1945 in Berlin.

Since 1967 it is member in the German artist federation and initial member of the group of “aspects” the citizen of Berlin critical materialists. Its first work is in sandstone as well as gypsum and stucco. Into 60's it began also to combine different materials (bronze, glass) and the surface extremely to smooth.
