American Studio Sculpted Walnut and Cherry Bench circa 2001
AMERICAN STUDIO SCULPTED WALNUT AND CHERRY TWO-SEATER BENCH
Circa 2001; signed, dated and titled “Blackwater no. 25" to the underside of the bench
Item # 709CNQ27O
Clearly inspired by the simplicity and austerity of the mid century, this gorgeous American Studio two-seater saddle bench is sculpted from solid walnut and cherry. The drop in cherry seat is crafted from two boards cut from the same plank, these matched up on their side grains to create a beautiful swirling effect. The light vertical serpentine of the cherry simulates a division between both seats. Each of the six turned legs swell slightly at the joint with the stretcher, these being expertly formed and highly organic. Beneath the bench is the inscribed title of “Blackwater no. 25”, being signed R.A. Laurer and dated 2001.
Measurements: 49 7/8" W x 15 5/8” D x 19” H
