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?
Material: Sculptural Firebowls are handmade 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.
Your Sculptural Firebowl arrives on a delivery truck with a lift gate. A two person team will unpack your firebowl, place it in your location of choice, assemble it for you and remove all packaging when finished.
Please provide a daytime phone number with your order so the delivery service can schedule an appointment at your convenience.
