Ryan McClean

Ryan specialises in designing hand crafted, bespoke pieces of silverware and tableware of the finest quality. Using form and texture to create highly tactile pieces; his work is a fusion of contemporary and classic designs produced entirely by hand using traditional silversmithing skills. Most recently Ryan has been inspired by images of nature and science. Growing up on the shores of Loch Nevis in the wilds of Scotland Ryan has always been fascinated by nature.  In his work he looks at the science behind growth and pattern formation such as fluid dynamics, the golden ratio and self organisation.   He uses form and texture to create sculptural pieces for example his sea urchin and brain coral collections reflect his inspirations from the natural world.
