Sculpture, Drawing


Designed by Ann Reichlin and fabricated by blacksmith Durand Van Doren II, Opposing View  is a bench that invites two people at a time to enjoy a quiet moment. Facing in opposite directions, the smooth cedar seats rest upon the linear steel framework. Both a 3D drawing and comfortable bench, Opposing View  uses the architecture of the bench to play with social interaction. Opposing View is currently on display on the grounds of Glimmerglass Opera in Cooperstown, NY. If you are interested in purchasing this bench please contact Sydney Waller:  Part of the proceeds will benefit Glimmerglass Festival. Additional bench designs are available upon request by contacting Ann Reichlin.  Information regarding Durand Van Doren can be found at: Durand's Forge
