A contemporary balance sculpture loosely inspired by abstractions from birds but Ben also allows the behaviour of the material during the forging process to help inform the final look. Each edition is different and unique whilst also belonging to a common family of work. All of these sculptures despite there differences are known as Aves.
Each sculpture averages around 23cm wide and around 33cm tall
More about Ben Pusey
Graduating from Hereford College of Art, Ben trained an artist blacksmith and explored the world of kinetic art. He loves exploring kinetic forged metal sculpture because of the endless varieties of shapes and forms it is possible to make and the rich potential of orchestrating movement. He uses these properties to inform the work’s interest in creating experiences of ‘calm’ and ‘relaxation’. The forged steel process adds to these conceptual qualities, detaching us from our ‘hyperculture’.
