Ben Booth

Born in Tooele Utah, he grew up in nearby Grantsville where he established himself early as an artist being commissioned to paint a welcome sign for his high school, signs for local business and wall murals.

 Leaving home from high school, he moved to New York to live with his father, Joseph Booth, a high school art teacher and student of Jackson Pollock. He took advantage of this proximity to countless art museums and cultural experiences in New York and he reaffirmed his pension for abstract art that stirs the imagination. His works at that time included paintings in ink and wall murals.

 Following his intrigue in technology, his career turned to that direction where he secured many IT certifications, a B.S. in Computer Information Systems and a M.Ed. in Educational Technology. All the time, acquiring a significant art collection and pursuing creativity as a wood sculptor from rough hewn hand split timber, oil painting, and photography.

Creating art from all types of medium has been his passion in life. He has always gravitated towards the avant garde in consumption and creativity.

 Now living in a log home on the Weber River in the small hamlet of Wanship, ten miles east of Park City Utah and spending winters in Washington Utah, he devotes every available moment designing unique art in the incredible medium of glass.

In 2013 he took his first class in glass fusing at the Park City Kimball Arts Center from David Robinson then followed up with every advanced class taught. Spontaneous rapture occupies his new found love - firing his creativity at 3500 degrees.

He has volunteered at the Park City Kimball Arts Festival, Kayenta Street Painting Festival  and the Arts in Kayenta Art Festival.
