Making his name at the front of Australia's glass art scene, Sydney-based artist Ben Young demonstrates his skill by crafting sculptures which depict running water trapped in motion. Using high-tech machinery, the artist hand-cuts glass sheets which are layered into translucent patterns which replicate the rippling of ocean waves.
When describing the process, Young tells Art Media Agency, "I guess the fact that I don’t have those skills is a large part of it. In this age of technology it feels like creating something by hand is a dying art; people don’t get their hands on things anymore. That’s the whole reason I became a boatbuilder; I just like being directly involved in the creative process."
