“I encapsulate my experience of the sea as a sailor with my love of the natural ergonomic designs we are surrounded by in nature, from the curve of the wind-filled sail to the symmetry of a budding flower”.
Ben Barrell’s sculpture and furniture speak of the sea, and as he suggests evoke images of sleek ships in sail and ocean waves. His work resonates with movement and rhythm and, although robustly constructed have a quality of lightness, appearing almost to float in their designated space.
Ben’s designs are simple but strong, pared down to essentials, making them particularly apt for placing in contemporary gardens.
