About Fire Cone 22-672

Canadian artist Floyd Elzinga has re-imagined the classic fire pit by creating a series of ‘fire cones.’ These iconic elegant outdoor sculptures are hand-forged from corten steel which naturally acquires an attractive rust-coloured patina over time. This piece stands upright on top of a chuck of stone—the stem end of the pine cone opens to reveal a metal basket for placing logs. Function and beauty!

“Floyd does in three dimensions what the Group of Seven did in two, his style is particularly his own”. – J. Long, art critic

His 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.
