Bewitching glass sculptures sandwich waters with landscapes

Looks like we can’t get enough of Ben Young’s glass sculptures. Raised in Waihi Beach, New Zealand and now based in Sydney, Australia, the self-taught artist has been doing these for over a decade, drawing, cutting and crafting his works by hand, layer by painstaking layer.

In some of his works, such as New Lands, turquoise water-like glass layers hang in mid-suspension across mountainous concrete. ‘I love the liquid qualities the glass brings with it. It enables me to play with lighting and watch the glass react,’ he said of the process.
