In both her jewellery and sculpture practice, Holly is informed by the work of artists from Pablo Picasso and Barbara Hepworth, to Henri Matisse and Man Ray.
Holly's sculpture work continues to inspire her jewellery and vice versa. Which is evident through art-driven pieces like the Mini Jerico Pendant – inspired by her friend and gallerist Jerico Tracy of Jerico Contemporary.
But all Holly Ryan pieces have been informed by art in some way. And each one helps to uphold the continuation of traditional craftsmanship.
