About Robert

Scottish artist Robert Ryan specialises in glass art, recognised as being vibrant and exceptional. Every piece is totally unique, with Robert painstakingly applying copper wires, crushed gemstones and metal elements into each piece of glass - 'jewellery for walls'.

Robert has developed an exceptional style of work, influenced by his training in glass and metalwork, the results of which are truly stunning. In the light, one can see the beautiful translucent colours, vibrant layers, and sparkle. The precise method of his craft is a well-guarded secret but the process starts with clear, blank glass and a shard of an idea. Ryan uses sheet glass as a canvas, doing everything an artist would normally do but in reverse. Instead of painting the images then framing it in glass, the glass front is the canvas.
