* Barbara Ryman

Represented by Stanley Street Gallery

Barbara Ryman has been a leading influence in Australian Contemporary jewellery for more than 30 years, primarily for her exquisite and extraordinary work with vitreous enamel.
In recent years she has spent much time in Japan studying Japanese enamelling techniques with master craftsman and mentor, Tsuyura Sakurai. These influences have provided many new directions of exploration that can be seen in Ryman’s work (or Barbara). “As a mature artist, I have sometimes found this challenging, but it has also been inspirational and transformative. I hope I will always take such leaps of faith”.

She has exhibited consistently both internationally and nationally and her work is held in both public and private collections e.g. Australian National Gallery, Canberra; the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney; Museum of Contemporary Enamelling - Salou, Spain to name a few.
