Rob Ryan Ceramics for YSP

Posted by on Monday 4th May, 2015

Rob has recently been working on a special range of ceramics for his upcoming show at Yorkshire Sculpture Park this summer!

We’ve worked closely with YSP and Big Tomato Company to design a range that would sit well in YSP’s shop alongside Rob’s show, ‘Listen to the World’.

We began by selecting the shapes that Rob was interested in working with and YSP organised the blank shapes to be sent to us. After choosing four of Rob’s artworks Libby worked to fit these to each shape. We were keen to make this a strong range so Rob drew a border which has been used on each piece to link the ceramics together.

We worked with paper templates laid over the ceramics which gave us a fairly good idea of the final outcome!


Once we were happy with the artwork it was sent directly to Big Tomato Company who sampled the ceramics, after a few alterations to the colours of the plate rims Rob has approved the samples and they have now gone into production!

The English Creamware products are being produced in editions of 250 by Big Tomato Company who are based in the heart of the Staffordshire Potteries in Stoke-on-Trent. We are really happy with the range which includes two small plates, a platter and a mug.





Rob’s show ‘Listen to the World’ runs from 4th July – 1st November 2015 at Yorkshire Sculpture Park. The ceramics will be available exclusively from YSP’s award winning shop from 4th July.
