Ben Dearnley was born in Salisbury, Wiltshire and he spent much of his life surrounded by music. His late father, Dr Christopher Dearnley, was first, organist at Salisbury cathedral and then of St Paul's Cathedral, London. Thus, from an early age Ben was witness to the majesty of music and sculpture of the highest order. These childhood experiences, together with a deep love for the Masters of the past: Rodin, Michelangelo and Canova are the main motivating forces behind his work.​


Ben's work is always involved with the figure and its expressive nature; its truth and beauty. This exploration of the figure has led to many important commissions.

 

He has long been interested in collaborating with designers and architects and his latest works show something of the endless possibilities.

 

Ben's latest commission is a carving of the Bacardi Bombay Sapphire Gin logo of Queen Victoria. This has formed part of the reinvention of the Laverstock Mill site in Hampshire by the world famous Thomas Heatherwick studios.
