Sculptures by Steve Gillman seen at Pier 7, Embarcadero, San Francisco - Bay Bench

Bay Bench

At Pier 7, Embarcadero, Oakland, California-based artist Steve Gillman created two interactive pieces called the Bay Bench. These two identical sunset red granite benches with curved bronze grill insets are reminiscent of ship’s hatch covers. The bronze grill provides visual access to the undulating bay water below. People have been commenting that the experience of sitting on the stone and being able to visually access the water moving and swelling below is so fun and refreshing.
