"In Carol Snyder's ceramic vessels, landscapes are wellsprings of hope, utopian perfection and ease. . . .

Snyder's porcelain vessels are reductions of direct observation. She translates recurring information such as horizon lines, cornstalks, trees and fence rows into design elements. The results are works that are simple, clean and elegant.

All of Snyder's work relies on light. The thin white porcelain allows light to pass through; thus, viewers are keenly aware of the translucence of her medium.

Adding to the effect, she often embosses or cuts away shapes, enabling even more light to filter through. A few pieces rely on a thin black line as an accent.

In her tree-inspired cylindrical pieces, the porcelain changes density from a thicker base to a thin and fragile lip. The delicate edge resembles the way light filters through treetop foliage.

In Hay Bales, circular shapes repeat themselves and allude to the large, round hay bales that dot the Ohio countryside. In Fences, the linear pattern observed in windbreak fencing wraps around a conical vessel.

Referring to natural harmony and beauty, Snyder's work embraces the rural environment."
