We have been working hard behind-the-scenes here at Ryantown HQ building our new website and we are excited to announce that the site is now live! 

The website features a full archive of Robs work, studio images, details of forthcoming events and so much more! From now onwards this blog will be relocated to the new website so please read all about the latest Ryantown happenings there.

We now have our own online shop where you can easily buy direct from us! The shop will be selling all of our products, including screenprints, lasercuts, studio ceramics, textiles and books too. You can visit the shop website here.

We worked with the brilliant team at Glock, who have done a great job building the site we wanted. The website is easy to use and is home to all of Robs work, past and present. It has been a lot of work uploading all of the images but it is now finally ready. We are so happy with it and we hope you like it too. You can visit the new website by clicking here.

Tatty Devine and Rob Ryan Collaboration

We are very excited to announce the launch of a brand new collaboration with Tatty Devine which is now available exclusively at Selfridges!

Rob and Harriet of Tatty Devine have worked closely together to translate elements from Rob's signature papercuts into a fine jewellery collection which comes in a choice of sterling silver, 18-carat gold plated and 18-carat rose gold plated sterling silver.

The beautiful collection features minature birds, intricate lock and key detailing, romantic knots and lyrical wording.

Back in the summer, Ryantown HQ was transformed for the day as the Tatty Devine Team used our studio for the photoshoot. Here is a look at some of the behind the scenes photos from the day.

Libby from the studio worked closely with Harriet to design our very own pop-up shop in Selfridges,  you can find the specially designed space on the third floor of the department store

Rob comments on the collaboration, 'I make big, complicated, elaborate paper cuts and it’s hard to encapsulate that in tiny pieces of jewellery. I wanted to make something that had joy and lightness to it. If it were up to me alone, I’d have come up with ridiculously complex ideas! Harriet brought a real simplicity to the work to create beautiful, wearable pieces.'

The collection is available exclusively at Selfridges London now and will also be for sale in Ryantown later in the year. Watch the video below to see Rob and Harriet Vine in conversation, as they share their thoughts behind the design process and ideas behind the collaboration. 

You can see each piece in more detail on Tatty Devine's Pinterest here! The Jewellery is also available to buy online on the Selfridges website
