About the artistBen worked for many years as an architect, before taking the Camosun College Furniture Design/Build Program in 2007. He enjoys making unique custom furniture, often inspired by West Coast themes. Materials used are primarily local woods, such as Douglas For, Western Maple, Juniper combined with hardwoods as accents. His style relies on bent lamination, compound miters, multiple thin members to achieve strength. Glass, resin and metal are also frequently used. Ben seeks to create one-off pieces that express the owners personal interests, and functional requirements. Each new piece is an exploration into new artistic territory and techniques.
