Ben Young’s Sculptures Offer Slices of the Ocean

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Ben Young’s sculptures of where the land meets the sea appear almost toy-like. Unlike experiencing a large body of water in real life, where we become instantly aware of our comparative smallness, Young’s work makes natural phenomena appear contained and perfectly comprehensible. Young, who is based in Australia, crafts these “Broken Liquid” sculptures using a combination of aqua-tinted glass and cast bronze. Despite his pieces’ impressive level of detail, he insists that he uses a completely analog process from start to finish. Meticulously crafted, his sculptures resemble slices of landscapes that we can hold in the palms of our hands.
