Statement

Recently Ben has been making frequent trips to the tide pools during low tide.  Here, washed in from the sea, he finds fragments of man-made objects, smoothed or eroded beyond recognition, by time in the sea and the sun.  He takes pride in removing man-made debris from the rocky shore, returning to his studio with a great variety of texture, color and form, and going to work on the craftsmanship of designing and joining these disparate pieces together into a unified sculpture.
