THE BACK STORY

Portrait of Ben in his studio

Making something out of nothing

Thanks for taking the time to check out my work. I’m Ben - I’ve been carving for a few years now, and all the sculptures that you see here are made from industry byproducts and waste materials. 

 

I think it’s important to consider what we use and what we throw away, and what happens to it once it is. My first series “one day we will all be dust” is about how things break down and how long that process takes. Considering that all of the material used was going to be thrown away, it’s mad to consider that many of these pieces will be here for years to come.

 

No two pieces are the same and they are all going handcrafted in my studio in Haringey. If you have any questions, or would like to come for a visit to see the pieces in person, please do get in touch.
