The King Isosceles firebowl embodies an intriguing geometric aesthetic within the deep curves cut into its profile. The lines of the King Isosceles speak of a pleasing simplicity, a clean and subtle elegance. These lines are a symbol of reason and rigor, of comfort and symmetry, of civilization built on classical forms and knowledge.
Western culture has long held the austere beauty of Euclidean geometry to be a glimpse into an otherworldly system of perfection and certainty, even as its proofs are grounded solidly in the natural laws of the material world.
As a sculptor, I'm fascinated by form, volume and geometry. The simplest designs are often the most difficult to get right— they must meet a higher standard of perfection than organic forms, as any error immediately draws the eye. For me, art is best when it overlaps myth and math, symbol and science, form and function.
Abraham Lincoln was known to read Euclid's Geometry by candlelight, convinced its mathematical proofs would quicken his logic and oratory in the courtroom. The King Isosceles firebowl is a modernist homage to this classical approach to eloquence, and my hope is that it will inspire your stories told round the blaze.

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 makes drop-in kits for all of my firebowl designs. To order, or for a free consultation, call Steven at 866.875.6615.
I've partnered with Steven instead of offering kits myself because he is an expert in gas installations and conversions. 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.
Want to compare specs for different firebowl designs? View this chart which lists all my Firebowl designs and shows the correct size for burners and pans, how many pounds of glass each design holds and how many BTUs they use. It also links to the sales page and the spec sheets for each FireCrystals product. You can use the chart to research your project on your own, but I highly reccomend talking to Steven to figure out the best options for your project.
