New Layered Glass Sculptures Capture the Depth and Beauty of the Ocean



Self-taught artist Ben Young’s latest collection of ocean-inspired glass sculptures is as stunning as ever. Working for over 15 years, his creations continue to capture the beauty of the clear-blue ocean. A constant source of inspiration ever since growing up in the tranquil Bay of Plenty, on the northern coast of New Zealand.

Each piece starts with a 2D drawing and is then meticulously assembled using layers of hand-cut, translucent glass sheets, laid onto concrete rock formations.

The glass layers are then laminated to create a solid, smooth surface that looks like a snapshot of the ocean, caught in time.

Often featuring miniature brass figurines of sailboats and explorers, Young’s work evokes stories of oceanic adventures.

In his latest series, brass lighthouses look out from icy glaciers, a palm tree stands on its own concrete island, and ships sail across the rippling surface of the ocean.
