Looking for the ultimate in high-end garden decor? This bench is almost like taking a deep sea dive and discovering the exotic and unexplored depths of the ocean.
This bench was designed by Don Drumm. Don is a prolific sculptor and designer/craftsman living in Akron, Ohio who pioneered the use of cast aluminum as an artistic medium. When Don has a design concept to be fabricated in aluminum or steel, he puts it in the hands of Cricket Forge to take it to final form.

About Cricket Forge Garden Decor
Garden decor created by Cricket Forge, an offshoot of Vega Metals, can be found primarily in art galleries, upscale garden centers and botanical gardens. Vega Metals began in 1987 and is the recipient of seven international awards for modern iron work. Our hand forged architectural metal art has been featured in numerous trade publications and books devoted to the art of blacksmithing. One of our favorite books, “The Contemporary Blacksmith” by Dona Meilach includes our work, as well as that of many other metal artist-craftsmen.
The creative vision of Cricket Forge is clearly stated in each and every piece of metal yard art we make. Cricket Forge’s Butterfly Bench, our very first bench design, is now known as our signature piece. This bench is available in three sizes and continues to be our best seller. Our metal yard art furnishings, garden benches and sculpture grace many private and public gardens throughout the U.S.
