The forged metal and the light balancing of his sculptures creates this interesting juxtaposition between the perceived values of “heavy” steel and “light” balancing.

Ben set up his blacksmith's forge in North Norfolk a couple of years ago. He makes his beautifully balanced hand-forged kinetic sculpture in small batch series, as well as larger, one-off pieces. All are engineered by Ben himself using iron and steel he has beaten into finely tuned intricate shapes to achieve unique mobile sculpture that feel lovely because of the quality of the materials and his inspiration.
He conveys a sense of calm and tranquillity to simply enjoy the moment. Our innate desire to play is satisfied as we interact with his sculptures.
