Ben Young, Glass Artist

Ben Young is faaaaantastic.  New Zealand-born, Australia-residing, this gentlemen has grown up on the water.  A master boat-builder and avid surfer, Ben looked to the world around him for inspiration for his art.  He takes 2D shapes (most often water) and hand-draws, -cuts and -assembles pane after pane of glass to render the work in 3D.  The result is absolutely stunning.  It’s hard to comprehend how much work must go into his art, as it looks deceptively simple, but there you go.  It’s stunning.
