About the Work

A steel pine cone cut lengthwise or segmented exposing a stem created from a cluster of steel rods is secured to a flat stone base. The steel scales and stem of this large outdoor sculpture are allowed to rust. This work is also a 'fire cone'. Kindling and logs may be stacked within the opening in the steel rods to create a spectacular night fire. Floyd Elzinga’s work explores traditional landscape through non-traditional techniques. Strongly influenced by the natural and cultivated environment surrounding his studio on the Niagara Escarpment, each creation is a direct reference to his distinctly Canadian perspective. Elzinga’s pinecone sculptures have been featured as part of Toronto’s Scotiabank Nuit Blanche celebration of contemporary art, and his work is held in collections across Ontario and in the US. Elzinga received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design in Halifax, NS.
