Landscape Furnishings is collaborating with blacksmith Jake James to bring forth a new bench design into our product line. Jake James is an award-winning British born and educated Blacksmith. He has over a decade of success creating functional and sculptural work in forged metal. Jake operates his forge from Vancouver Islands inspirational west coast.
This new bench design utilizes a forged steel leg that supports the thin cross sections possible with Ductal concrete. The uhpc concrete will be cast in a matte white to contrast the forged steel leg. Typically steel brackets and legs are manufactured in high volume, each one exactly the same as the one before - this is not the intention with these forged legs. The ductal bench is to be cast from a rubber mold, with a 1/16" radius on all edges. The contrast between the near perfect ductal and the gnarly forged steel is sure to create a stunning piece.
