Artist's Statement:
Materials are at the heart of the process and are usually the starting point of design for Ryan. “My products are often by-products of the creative process,” says Ryan. “I’m inspired by the range of materials readily available in the environment and like to let a specific material dictate the kind of product that I make.”
