Inspired by Otomi textile designs, this one of a kind Sculptural Firebowl features fanciful animals cut from curved steel and welded to the bowl as appliqué. Each of these animals is flirting or in love, and so hearts are cut into the bowl between and under the animals.
The figures cast amazing shadows when lit by the sun or by fire. As the flames flicker, enjoy a shadow puppet theatre projected by your firebowl.
The Otomi tapestries that inspired this firebowl design feature fantastic animals and plants cavorting in a fairy tale setting of magical realism. The roots of these images are cave paintings and healing artworks made by Otomi shamans from amate, a paper crafted from the bark of a fig tree.
Exclusive Originals are custom fire features that are true one-of-a-kind works of art. Each is an edition of one, and you are guaranteed to have the only fire sculpture like it. Every Original will feature completely different figures and decorations.
The Exclusive Originals line makes it possible for the first time to have an original work of art unlike any other in the world, at a price lower than I normally charge for unique commissioned designs.

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.
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.
