Happy, fun, and colorful, Sweet Pops of Brilliance features man-made materials forged into a whimsical form, then infused with bright primary shades.
Craig Snyder’s art often showcases the interactions between earth-based materials, as natural finishes soften hard man-made materials, as well as the mingling of Western and Eastern cultures. Fascinated with the East, he experiments with techniques and concepts that originate there, including wabi-sabi, the acceptance of beauty infused by the imperfection as a reflection of our lives and loves.
