My wife and I were looking for a floor lamp for the living room and had been going all through Amazon's website and a few others. Then we remembered having seen some of this company's art/furniture at the Durham weekly market. Something original, and local seemed so much better as soon as we thought of it. Our polished steel floor lamp with the three female silhouettes holding the shade is awesome. Quality workmanship, with nice curved frosted shade; even the bulb housing and pull chains are quality. We met with one of the owners to talk about details . He was great; no pressure, nice guy. Highly recommend this company.

The guys at Cricket Forge are fantastic to work with. My wife and I wanted a custom table for our dining room and CF is where we went. As a metal working shop they designed and built our table base. For the woodwork they suggested Elijah Leed Studios. Both teams worked together to produce a beautiful piece of furniture. If you are looking for metal work this is the place to go.

Do not hesitate to meet with Jonathan and Neil at Cricket Forge. They were amazing and helped me with a custom piece ( inverted pyramid) for Art In Bloom at the North Carolina Museum of Arts. I can't express enough how awesome they were. Prompt, communicative, engaged,responsive and timely and above all else , quality. Thank you guys!!!!!!

Their work is absolutely beautiful and extremely durable. I got my wife the tree of life bench a couple years ago and I’ll try to put a picture up soon. The anniversary is coming up and maybe a butterfly chair.

Lovely metallurgy shop! The artists are friendly and helpful, and their art is very reasonably priced. Great to bring visiting family and friends to "show off" the spirit of Durham.

It would be nice if the shade came down lower.

Jonathan was very nice to deal with for my order. He told me it would likely be 6 weeks before my order would be produced, and kept me informed when the piece was completed. The trucking company he suggested was on time and very courteous. I am very pleased with the piece and would gladly do business with Cricket Forge again! Isn’t life nice when everything goes smoothly?

The owners of Cricket Forge could not have been more accommodating and accessible. They answered all my questions promptly and to my satisfaction. It was a pleasure to deal with them, and their work is outstanding. I recommend them without reservation.

We have been very pleased with every piece of work that ever came from the forge in the last few decades. They accompanied us to and from our households, both foreign and domestic. Upon landing in our forever home in Atlanta, we purchased ten more pieces to enhance our backyard. The new owners at Cricket have been a joy to work with…!

I've been immensely enjoying my Cricket Forge sealift bench since just a few months into the pandemic. As a longtime diver and sea life devotee, the design provided the perfect theme around which to organize my safe outdoor entertaining. Though the purchase was a big splurge, its aesthetic and functionality exceeded my expectations. Its solid as a rock and doubles down as both a unique sculpture and surprisingly comfortable seating for two, possibly even 3 people.. I still toy with adding a birdbath or other accruement...but in the meantime,,1 highly recommend Cricket Forge as a source of interesting/fun,, functional and exceptionally well made patio or yard furniture.
