The ocean is an amazing ball of energy, which quite frankly we could never live without. She roars and thunders, barrels and churns. She picks you up when you are feeling down and refreshes you when you are all sweaty and hot. She calms you when you are feeling nervous and brings you down to earth with a humbling tumbling when you are feeling a little cocky!
Yes, we are children of the ocean and that is why we absolutely adore these concrete and glass sculptures from Broken Liquid. Raised in Waihi Beach, New Zealand now residing in Sydney, Australia, Ben Young is a self-taught artist who has been making glass sculpture for over 10 years.
Being a keen surfer and boatbuilder by trade, Ben was inspired to capture the perfection and raw power of the sea. It’s hard to believe that each of his beautiful sculptures are hand drawn, hand cut and handcrafted, layer on layer to create the end product. There is no high-tech equipment involved at all.
A craftsman in every sense of the word, Ben Young is available for collaboration and commissioned pieces. You can get in touch with him via his website .
