Cirrelda "CC" Snider-Bryan settled in Albuquerque’s North Valley 30 years ago, across the river from where her grandmother lived during her childhood. Built alongside her spouse JB, their home reflects a life devoted to clay, nature, printing, teaching, writing. In clay, tile and illustration dominate. In addition to her webpage and Etsy shop, a few of her pieces are available at the Weyrich Galerie in Albuquerque.
Cirrelda has taught private classes to public school 3rd grade classroom to informal Museum education at the NM Museum of Natural History & Science, where she is now a Contract Educator with the state. Cirrelda coordinated 3 whole school clay tile murals in APS, and in 2008 joined Laura Robbins in coordinating the Protect Our Wildlife Corridors Community Mosaics where she learned to love collaborative mosaic - both the process that mixes clay and glass as well as the group work aspect. Some of her professional memberships include Handmade Tile Association, Tile Heritage Association, NM Potters & Clay Artists, Pathways: Wildlife Corridors of New Mexico, Environmental Education Association of NM.
