Layered Glass Wave Sculptures by Ben Young

Broken Liquid 2

If you thought your kid’s 4th grade mission project was impressive, think again. New Zealand based sculptor Ben Young has unveiled a new collection of glass sculptures for the Sculpture Objects Functional Art + Design Fair in Chicago this week. Young, a self taught artist, works with laminated clear float glass that he then puts atop cast concrete bases to create cross-section views of ocean waves that look almost like topographical charts. It’s really impressive work that I can only imagine takes multitudes of patience and the steadiest hands on earth. You can learn more about his sculptures over on Kirra Galleries, and follow him on Facebook.
