"Great Bowls 'O Fire"... Contemporary Sculptor-Designer, John T. Unger Heats Up Outdoor Decor for Hospitality Venues Worldwide
Today, Unger is expanding upon his popularity with residential customers to include a growing list of hospitality and contract venues around the globe, including Southwest Porch in Bryant Park, NYC; Sandals, Montego Bay; and the Sheraton Waikiki's Rumfire bar. From restaurants to resorts, public parks to congregations, the art and functionality of Unger's designs are catching fire with those focused on providing unforgettable experiences for patrons and guests. "It (the firebowl) looks fabulous and I put it on a pedestal as a dramatic eye catching road sign alternative," said Chef Bobo Bergstrom, Fire Grill Restaurant in St Lucia, West Indies.
“When a homeowner buys my firebowls, I take satisfaction knowing that it's beauty has inspired them to invest in atmospheric artwork that will be passed down for generations..." said Unger, "but firebowls in public places such as a hotel or restaurant allow thousands of people a year to see and enjoy my work. This allows me to share my vision with a far broader audience.”
Unger created his first firebowl design in 1995. After discovering discarded propane tanks at a local scrap yard, Unger's creativity took over and his firebowl design took form. The writer in Unger sees a kind of poetry that emerges from the use of a fuel storage device in the production of an object that will encapsulate fire.
"It's easy to see why fire features are such popular elements in contemporary landscape design. The dance of flames is soothing and exciting, intimate and social, the perfect backdrop for tall tales, quiet reflection or romantic moments," said Unger.
The recycled naissance of his art is something Unger takes very seriously. "If my job as an artist is to fill the world with 'more things,' I feel it is equally important that I reclaim materials from the waste stream to make space for my work." said Unger. "I also believe strongly in designing for permanence and for functionality. My Firebowls come with a Dynasty Guarantee— a legacy to be passed down to your children and theirs." As Unger continues today to use 100% recycled steel, his hand cut firebowls offer not only an American made option for commercial locations, but an environmentally friendly one as well.
Fourteen firebowl designs are now available from John T. Unger Studio with more on the drawing board for 2012. The most popular, The Great Bowl 'O Fire, is a hand cut flame design that casts intriguing shadows as lively as the fire within. Other designs span a range of decorative motifs from the intricate Fiery Fleur-de-Lis to the minimalistic Big Bowl O' Zen.
The firebowl designs lend themselves to creativity in installation as well. Adorning walls and water features, the combination of earth elements offers a striking image creating additional artistry and visual enjoyment.
The industrial grade, ¼ inch thick steel insures the long outdoor life of each piece as well as low maintenance; a welcome feature for public locations. "I design for permanence," said Unger."Most of my objects will last generations with little or no maintenance." His creations draw from primal metaphor and classical elements of design to insure that they will never go out of style. Each piece in the Unger line is crafted with a center hole for drainage or for up-fitting to accommodate a natural gas connection. Signed or engraved stainless steel plates mark each John T. Unger Studio firebowl as a unique sculptural work made to order.
