Tumbling flows of rushing water push their way to the sea. The river runs wild and imbues the land with myriad topographies. To be free like the river.
About Craig Snyder
Sculpture is my thing. I appreciate all forms of art but working in three dimensions appeals to me in so many ways. I have gravitated to public art. I enjoy the collaboration and teamwork when putting together a large piece. It’s really the ultimate showcase for my work — it’s out there for all the world to see and love or not.
My specific focus is on welded steel, copper, brass and aluminum. I often combine that with stone, wood and now also ceramic and glass. Depending on the preference of the piece, I will go with natural patinas but also seriously love color. I’ve always been fascinated with the East and have chosen to experiment with techniques and concepts originating there, such as wabi-sabi. For me, wabi-sabi is the acceptance of beauty infused by the imperfection as a reflection of our lives and loves.
Depending on the specifics of the project, I have an Architect, Structural Engineer and a Fabrication shop ready to be part of the team when needed.
