Master craftsman John Ryan studied ceramics at Thomastown, Co.Kilkenny back in the early 90s going on to work for several of Ireland’s top studio potters. To progress and develop his throwing skills even further John travelled extensively throughout the Middle East and Japan.

After his travels, John returned home to his native south county Sligo to set up his own studio where he has been based ever since creating functional and decorative stoneware ceramics. His inspiration is drawn from the simplicity and beauty of the surrounding landscape of the west of Ireland.
