One of our biggest jobs here at Ryantown HQ is posting out all of our Etsy shop orders. Michelle and Louise from the studio work hard to post out every week day from the studio and make our packages the best they can be with little presents for our lovely customers!
Here's a little photo montage of how your purchases are packaged!

We've just moved in to our new studio (next door to the old one!) and the blank walls are a perfect opportunity for Rob to start his new book!!!

I can't reveal too much this early into the writing, but we've decided to document the stages of writing on this blog.

So here it is, step one, Post-It stage.....

My exhibition at Charleston is almost over and I've decided to make an edition of one my favourite pieces in the show - this jug!!!

Each one starts as a blank and we screenprint the different elements of the design onto decal paper. Once dry, the decals are immersed in water and applied to the blank jug by hand - the same goes for all of our mugs/plates/money boxes - you name it! I then paint the handles black and they are fired so I can apply another layer of.....GOLD!!!!

Each one is signed in gold and they are in a small edition of 25 - available in Ryantown this weekend!!!

The First Cut

I've spent the last few months working on my largest papercut to date. This is just a small detail of a picture which measures 1.5m x 3m. It's going to be exhibited as part of Manchester Art Gallery's 'First Cut' exhibition which runs from Oct 4th - 27th January 2013. As well as this huge papercut I have also produced a limited edition print which will be available to buy exclusively from the gallery for the duration of the show. You can find out more about the exhibition and opening times here
