The Firefly Story

The Firefly is a deep, large bowl that shields fire from wind within its three petals while providing an inviting space to gaze into the fire. Joining the cut off from the King Isosceles to the form of a Big Bowl O' Zen, the Firefly resembles a large flower bud or seed pod.

A study in contrasts, the firefly uses light and dark to create a heightened illusion of depth, a chiaroscuro effect accentuating shadow and flame. Like fireflies captured in a jar on a summer eve, the sparks circle enclosed, glowing stars of your own.

Baroque painter Caravaggio used a powder of dried fireflies to prepare photosensitive canvases 200 years before the invention of photography. Images projected onto this magical surface would fluoresce for half an hour, giving him time to lay the broad strokes of a painting using white lead mixed with minerals visible in the dark. His visions have become known as masterpieces of his time… what visions might you conceive while gazing into the shifting fire inside your Firefly?
