Australian based, young artist, Ben Young, creates outstanding sculptures out of glass.  The self- taugh artist was  born in New Zeland and grew up near the Bay of Plenty , where he gets more of his inspiration . A keen surfer and a boat builder by profession, he is largely influenced by the ocean and manages to create sculptures that show the power of the sea and the perfect form of the waves.  In addition, other local landscapes including the lonely Mount Maunganui and Mayor Island have featured in his uniquely crafted glass sculptures.

 

What is more exchiting about Ben Young’s designs is that all of his work is handmade. Many people wonder if his work is made digitaly, or maybe with 3D printing, suprisingly though the sculptural works are hand drawn, hand cut and handcrafted from clear sheet float glass made for windows, chosen only from the finest materials. Then they are laminated layer upon layer to create the final form.  The texture and colour of the glass is different in every piece he makes, ensuring one-off and truly unique pieces of artwork.
