Ben Young’s Glass Sculptures
- Caroline Kurze
Self-taught artist Ben Young is a man of many talents from surfing and skateboarding to repairing furniture and working full-time as a qualified boat builder.
Though we’d like to put the focus on his amazing glass sculptures, that he creates using sheet after sheet of carefully cut glass. He builds both abstract and realistic interpretations of waves and bodies of water, undoubtedly influenced by growing up near the beautiful Bay of Plenty on the northern coast of New Zealand’s North Island. More of his works can be viewed on his Tumblr.
