Benjamin Oswald's work occurs within the blurred lines of art, design and contemporary craft. He designs and makes objects, some favouring form and others function. His sculptural works are explorations of form, shape and volume inspired by modernist sculpture and minimalist aesthetics, which can be seen in his constructions and combinations of objects and their arrangements in space.
He uses units of designed objects to flesh out forms, structures, installations, series and editions. Observations of nature also serve as guiding inspirations in the construction and making of vessels and objects, but he is not limited to these inspirations alone. He is highly motivated by the material and frequently allows it to guide during the making process where the meaning of the work is often derived upon completion.
