Ben Halsband was born in Chile in 1987.
Halsband came to Gateway as an experienced artist – he started making his own line of jewelry at an early age, often drawing inspiration from his environment. He continues to make jewelry and has diversified his craftsmanship to include hand-made houseware and sculpture. A fine ceramic artisan and intuitive designer, Halsband’s handbuilt pottery pieces are not only visually captivating, but also ergonomically created. Often inspired by music, his family, and other artists, Ben uses not only keen sensibility, but a great sense of humor while pursuing his artmaking practice.
Halsband’s work has been exhibited at the Gateway Gallery.
