Artist Ben Young was born in New Zealand and now lives in Sydney. He is a self-taught and has been making his glass sculpture for over 10 years. They were inspired by his time spent surfing.
“I work with 2D shapes and have to figure out how to translate that into a 3D finished product. Sometimes my start point changes dramatically as shapes can be limited – I can’t create any internal right angles – so I have to find a way to layer the glass to create certain shapes”
