Benton Jones has committed himself to relentless sculptural experimentation and strives to impart layered meaning into each object he creates. Often combining materials with contrasting properties, like molten glass and non-ferrous metals, Jones captures liquid sculpture in mid-motion by precisely choreographed cooling in his kilns.

The search for commonality within disparity, both in subject matter and media choice, is a recurring theme in Jones’ work. He has transformed century old Sandwich Glass remnants into contemporary drop-ring vessels, made a series of work entitled Oceanic Experience from the glass walls of the old Provincetown Aquarium, and, in a collection of ice-like glass sculpture entitled Melting Hemispheres, Jones captured the attention of the New England Cable Network, when he reshaped glass flotation spheres previously in use by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution for climate change research, in an effort to draw attention to the issue.
