Craig Snyder


Painted steel
12' x 3' x 3' 


Craig was bitten by the metal bug in the 00s and has since done numerous sculpture and public art pieces and commissions. His work has shown up in Sioux Falls, Mason City, Breckenridge, Edina, Kenosha, Urbana, Decatur and other cool towns. Craig continuously flips between left brain and right brain as he also does website development and programming. But, if he’s honest, the sculpture is much more intriguing.

He works mostly with steel, but also mixes in stainless steel, brass, copper, aluminum, stone and wood into his sculptures. Craig has an affinity to color and often will use paint and vibrant patinas to create eye-catching and interesting pieces. Currently he is learning to weld aluminum and has also started with ceramics where he recently participated in a Raku firing.

He hangs out with artists of all types at Vesper, the Chicago Avenue Fire Arts Center, the Minnetonka Center for the Arts and the Guild of Metalsmiths, all in an ongoing effort to expand his skills and meet really interesting people.
