The Reign Of Fire Sculptural Firebowl is my masterpiece— the most beautiful thing I've created in over a decade of hand-carving fire features from steel. More gorgeous, perhaps, than any work I've made in 20 years working as a professional artist.
This is a reinvention of my first firebowl design, The Great Bowl O' Fire, that brings it to the pinnacle of sculptural poetics.
The intricacies of flames cut within flames allow a play of light and shadow that dazzles and beguiles— whorls and spirals, tongues and licks of flame, all interlock seamlessly as a dancing blaze. The centerpiece is a phoenix with flaming wings, symbolizing the rebirth of recycled steel into something new and beautiful. A hand-shaped flame attests that the sculpture is hand-carved with a torch. The remaining shapes are the natural forms of fire, ingrained in my hand from a life spent working with fire to create beauty from metals.
Material: Sculptural Firebowls are hand made from American made High-Strength, Low-Alloy, Cold-Rolled Steel.
A one inch hole in the bowl's center provides drainage and makes gas conversion simple.
Sculptural Firebowls are suitable for wood, propane or natural gas and ship ready-to-fit for clean-burning propane or natural gas.
Upgrade kits are sold separately by Steven Stegall at FireCrystals. Steven has designed an easy-to-install, drop-in kit for gas conversion. To order call Steven at 866.875.6615.
The reason I've partnered with Steven instead of offering kits myself is because he is an expert in gas installations. He can walk you through the many choices and variables to customize a kit to fit your project exactly. He is also excellent at support if you or your builder have questions.
