The Firefly Sculptural Firebowl™

  • 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?

  • Propane and Natural Gas options (sold separately):

    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.
