Ryan is excited about his 7th year participating in Greenville’s Open Studios. Please visit us Friday Nov 6th 6-9pm, Saturday Nov 7th 10-6pm, and Sunday Nov 8th 12-6pm.
I use industrial welding technology and old Blacksmithing equipment to create metal artwork. I use new and recycled steel purchased from a local supply company. I create products ranging in color and design from 17 years of experience working directly with iron. My studio is home to a blacksmith shop with metal fabrication tooling. I am involved in teaching and promoting the craft of artist blacksmith.
Most of my work is site specific and commission based, but Open Studios offers me an opportunity to create an annual series of artwork. My 2015 exhibit is dedicated to the landscape of downtown Greenville and explores building and ironwork. Towers growing, land shifting, people emerging. The series consists of small moquettes of an architectural village influenced by Greenville’s growing downtown scene. Small to large work is available.
