Ryan uses form and texture to create highly tactile pieces. Influenced by the wild and rugged nature of his native Scotland he designs and creates fascinating silverware of the finest quality. His work is a fusion of contemporary and classic designs produced entirely by hand using traditional silversmithing skills that include raising, chasing, forging, and planishing. Pushing these techniques to their limits Ryan creates intriguing and functional pieces. Ryan’s passion for the natural world can be seen in his work, the results are bold, exciting and imaginative. Ryans work can be found in many private collections and galleries.
