Christopher Kurtz Alaskan Cedar Swing

About

Hand-carved Alaskan cedar wood swing by Upstate New York-based artist and designer Christopher Kurtz. Can be installed outside or inside. Available in custom sizes and woods. "The trompe l' oeil effect of the carving gives the wood the feeling of drooping around the rope suspension points-- which plays with the our expectations of wood as being a rigid material. The result is rather comfortable but also gives the benches the feeling of drooping, and floating at the same time, both yielding to gravity and defying gravity like a child's vision of a magic carpet." – Christopher Kurtz.

Additional Options

Custom sizing and woods available. Outdoor woods offered are; Teak, and Alaskan Cedar.
