BenArnup is a leading exponent of trompe l’œil ceramics that play with the viewers’ perception of perspective.
Ben’s ceramics are held in international private collections as well as English museums. He has exhibited throughout Europe and the U.S.A. Ben, who studied art at York School of Art, then qualified and practiced as a Landscape Designer, has a workshop based at his home in the centre of York.
Since being awarded the development grant in 2009 Ben has been developing a new style of work in which the naturally coloured clays have been rolled and sliced, re-assembled into slabs and accented with a thin stripe of porcelain and formed into a flattened vessel form. The body of work in this exhibition utilises the marbling techniques that he has developed during this period. All the work has been produced in 2019 at his studio in York
