Creators of The Original Butterfly Bench. We were the first in the market to introduce the Butterfly Bench in 1999. Since then many have tried to copy it, but no one has been able to match its beauty or durability. If the bench is not stamped ©Cricket Forge, it's not The Original Butterfly Bench, don't be fooled with imitations. If it is stamped Cricket Forge you can be assured of the quality, craftsmanship, and integrity of a well designed and handcrafted work of art that is made to last a lifetime.
About the Benches:
The design, production, and finishing is completed at our own facility in Durham, North Carolina. We have total hands-on control of quality in every respect. All benches are hand-crafted of 1/4" steel. The benches are fabricated, shot blasted, flame sprayed with zinc, and painted with a high quality two part epoxy base paint. This weather proof finishing technique results in a highly resistant coating that prevents oxidation. Benches are individually hand painted using a dry brush techniques or air brushed. Minimal maintenance is required - wash with mild soap and water to remove environmental grime.
Cricket Forge Tables.... work as well indoors as out. The weather proof and painted tables mix well with our benches and chairs to create inviting garden spaces and outdoor rooms. But they work just as well indoors. They offer a unique look and great durability as end or side tables. Also some of the tables can be used with a bowl to create short birdbaths.
Cricket Forge .... has partnered with internationally known sculptor Don Drumm to produce and market a special line of delightfully refreshing sculptural pieces for your garden. This exciting and prolific partnership takes Dons’ never ending imagination to final form and brings life to his clever and playful sculptural characters. It’s a wonderful collaboration of unmatched quality craftsmanship and creativity.
