New Layered Glass Sculptures by Ben Young

Sydney-based glass artist Ben Young (previously here) is back with his latest series of layered hand-cut laminate window panes.

“I hope viewers might imagine the work as something ‘living’ that creates the illusion of space, movement, depth and sense of spatial being.”

“I like to play with the irony between the glass being a solid material and how I can form such natural and organic shapes.”

“I do a lot of thinking before I even start to draw or cut. I work with 2D shapes and have to figure out how to translate that into a 3D finished piece. Sometimes my starting point changes dramatically as I have to find a way to layer the glass to create certain shapes.”

Young opens a new exhibition along with the glass works of artist Peter Nilsson, titled 'Float', in Melbourne at Kirra Galleries through August 23.
