Steel. Copper. Aluminum. Metals that I love to cajole and inspire them until they become art. It’s not easy — they slumber as regular industrial materials but usually with a little coaxing and words of encouragement… Yet sometimes its just heat, beat, twist, bend and hammer them into a sculpture. Mostly abstract and contemporary art. 

I focus on site-specific environmental art and design that truly makes a statement  

It’s serious. It’s fun. It’s fire-shaped metal sculpture. Art by Craig Snyder.

I try to remember that the job — as well as the plight, and the unexpected joy — of the artist is to embrace uncertainty, to be sharpened and honed by it. To be birthed by it. Each time we come to the end of a piece of work, we have failed as we have leapt — spectacularly, brazenly — into the unknown. – Dani Shapiro
