About Craig Snyder

According to Craig Snyder, sculpture is his thing. He appreciates all forms of art but working in three dimensions appeals to him in so many ways. Snyder has gravitated to public art. It’s really the ultimate showcase for his work — it’s out there for all the world to see and love or not. His specific focus is on welded steel, copper, brass, and aluminum. Snyder often combines those with stone, wood, and now also ceramic materials. Depending on the preference of the piece, he will go with natural patinas but also seriously love color. Snyder has always been fascinated with Eastern Culture and has chosen to experiment with techniques and concepts originating there, such as wabi-sabi. For him, wabi-sabi is the acceptance of beauty infused by the imperfection as a reflection of lives and loves.
