Ben Behunin
Ben Behunin a native of Salt Lake City, Utah. Ben has always been a bit of an artist, doodling in the margins of papers, making mud pies, carving wood and making sculpture out of discarded goods. In 1988 as a freshman in high school, he enrolled in his first formal art class. “Once my hands hit the clay, I knew I had found something in which I wanted to excel. After serving a mission in Germany I spent time in that country serving a potter's apprenticeship with an artist friend I had met during my time there. I continued my art studies in Hawaii and in Utah and married the girl of my dreams. Then dove into my art full-time and opened my own studio.”
