The Big Bowl O' Canada takes it's name from Canada's National Anthem, composed in 1880 by Calixa Lavallée, a talented musician whose father worked as a woodcutter, blacksmith and luthier. Although many variations of the song exist, in multiple languages, the tune is the same for all. I couldn't resist the connection between music and sculpture, between firebowls, lumberjacks and blacksmithing. The idea of art arising from hard work, skill and a grounding in the natural world is at the heart of this design.
The motif was inspired by a custom Great Bowl O' Fire for a Calgary client who requested a stylized flame in the shape of a maple leaf. I liked the results so much that it moved me to create a design especially for the Great White North.
I've shipped firebowls all across Canada, from Vancouver to Halifax. As the second largest land mass on earth, that's a lot of ground to cover. Filled with natural beauty and wonders, peopled by folks who love the outdoors, I can't think of any place that has more use for a firebowl that is solid and durable, beautiful and meaningful, large enough to gather a group of friends under a huge night sky.
Dimensions: 37" Diameter, 22" high overall, base is 12" in diameter and 6" tall. Weight: 110 pounds.
Thickness: Sculptural Firebowls are cut from quarter inch steel, TEN TIMES thicker than mass-produced fire pits.
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.
