Ben Young grew up in Waihi Beach on the beautiful coast of the Bay of Plenty on New Zealand’s North Island. For more than 10 years he has produced remarkable glass sculptures . Young currently lives in Sydney, Australia where he is working on new and exciting projects. The life of the avid surfers and boat builders by profession has been so strongly influenced by the ocean that it is not only present to its art objects, but plays a fundamental role. Relief forms such as the Maunganui Mountains and Mayor Island can be seen from his works.

Each artwork is hand-drawn, hand-cut, and then molded from clear glass, which is typically used for windows. It is put together layer by layer so that certain shapes are created. The final shape produces spectacular effects when the light shines through. Young never likes to do the same thing twice, even if the initial idea has changed dramatically.

The sculptures of the self-taught artist not only reflect his passion for the ocean . The human body and abstract objects can also be seen under the glass art collection. At the bottom of the video you can watch the artist at work.
