Description

This week on the Top Artist Podcast, we talk to sculptor Ben Young about his incredible glass and concrete sculptures and how he began making these unique pieces.  He explains that boating and water sports were an important part of his life for a long time, but a family trip first introduced him to the glass art that would later define his career. We learn about the influence his time as a boatbuilder had on his craft and about the leap of faith he made when transitioning to work as a full-time sculptor.
