The Font O' Fire 30 inch Sculptural Firebowl
The Font O' Fire 30 inch Sculptural Firebowl
John T. Unger, LLC
The Font O' Fire is perhaps my most versatile firebowl, equally at home in a wide variety of settings from rural to urban, rustic to high modern. Cradled in this shallow form, flames burn close, in an intimate display. The Font O' Fire embodies grace and simplicity, inspired by ideals of design so central to human experience they recur throughout history. In the only surviving book on architecture from the classical era, Vitruvius insisted a structure embody three qualities— it must be solid, useful, beautiful. Almost 2000 years later, Alvar Aalto said "We should work for simple, good, undecorated things… but things which are in harmony with the human being." The Buddhist concept of wabi sabi teaches that attention to the simplest objects, natural or manmade, helps connect us to our real world and avoid stress, distraction and unnecessary thoughts. Wabi translates as rustic simplicity, freshness, or understated elegance and refers to quirks of construction which make each object unique. Sabi is the beauty or serenity seen in the patina and wear of daily use. This focus on natural, changing, unique objects allows us to find the most simple objects interesting, fascinating and beautiful. Frederic Chopin once said, "Simplicity is the final achievement. After one has played a vast quantity of notes and more notes, it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art." It is this simplicity that is the Font O' Fire's greatest strength.

Detail of new patio including a grid of concrete pavers; warm-colored flagstone was re-used and introduced into the new seating area to play off the geometry as a touch of wabi sabi. The same honey-colored tones are seen in the river stones surrounding the patio's central cassia tree. Photo by Martin Cox
