Ben Williams

Ben WilliamsBen Williams is a Director, Senior Specialist and Head of Sales at Phillips.  After graduating from an Architectural Studies degree at Oxford Brookes University, he joined Bonhams in London in 1994 for what was originally intended to be a short stint of work experience assisting with exhibition layouts and running auctions.  Almost 20 years later, he is still fascinated by the process of buying and selling at auction.  He quickly developed an interest in the emerging and interlinked fields of Design, Contemporary Art and Contemporary Ceramics holding his first dedicated auction as a Specialist in 1997.  Joining Phillips first in 1999 and then again in 2007, Ben has been a major player in the transition of the Contemporary Ceramics market from a relatively small area of collecting through to a field with a true International platform, presenting the most exciting work re-contextualized and rehabilitated seamlessly within the Design department.
