It’s the first day of winter in Australia, and by our standards it’s getting a bit chilly. Yes I know that in Sydney we don’t know the real meaning of cold, to us it’s freezing if the mercury slips into single digits, and that’s celsius speak! In honour of winter today’s Friday Finds is all about fire. I love an outdoor fire. Memories of toasted marshmallows on camp fires, bonfires on the beach and if I cast my mind back a long long way we use to have bonfires on cracker night before everyone became safety conscious and fireworks were banned.
Fire pits are becoming a backyard trend at the moment, and they range from a hole in the ground or half a metal drum to some seriously beautiful metal sculptures. It’s the seriously beautiful end of the spectrum I’m coming from today. I stumbled across this artist when I was researching fire pits for a client. Rick Wittrig calls himself a functional steel artist, and his company, Fire Pit Art, creates very simple, yet elegant fire pits that look good with or without a flame.
Check out his website at Fire Pit Art.
I’m headed off to find me a heater!
