Fire Beckons

Fire beckons.
Sounds almost poetic, doesn't it? Well, if you haven't seen these gorgeous firepits made out of recycled steel, you might be missing out.

As a glass worker, you know how we work with flames all the time. Yes, I used to be scared of fire before learning how to make my lampwork beads, but you get over it after you've been burned a few times and realized that you'll be okay.

So of course, this fire pit has been beckoning to me. We already have a small outdoor fire bowl which is seldom used, but the combination of the design, plus flames plus the photo with the water is very enticing to me. It looks like a place I want to visit.

I found it in John T Unger's etsy shop. He is a full time artist using primarily recycled materials. Pretty cool. Here is an entire section with his artistic fire bowls.

I wanted to show you that I don't just live, breathe and think glass- I have a few flames on my mind too. And besides, I'm a pretty good outdoor cook who thinks those enticing swirly flames would be perfect rests for marshmallows, skewers and other flame cooked delicacy implements.

See you tomorrow!
