Inspired by Otomi textile designs, this one of a kind Sculptural Firebowl features matched pairs of peacocks and crested birds cut from curved steel and welded to the bowl as appliqué.
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: Hearth Products Controls (HPC) makes a wide variety of UL listed burner kits that will easily convert my firebowls to natural gas or propane. The best option is to purchase them on Amazon with free shipping and simple returns if needed. I cannot provide tech support as I am not an expert in gas or plumbing but instructions are included and HPC can be contacted directly if you need further support.
