Ben Goring

Ben Goring is a studio artist working mainly in ceramics and drawing.

Ben makes clay images of his favourite bands, musicians and his family, with a love of working large scale. His work is often informed by football, music and festival culture.

In 2022, Ben led the Venture Arts Summer Packs project, through which clay was sent out to families, along with Ben’s instructions about how to make joined figures of their favourite bands.
