Fire Roll is a curling sheet of 3/16-inch-thick stainless steel fitted with a 300,000 Btu gas burner, in this case for propane.
“Enclosing the flame with an open wave of metal, the shape is designed to push the warm air out toward you,” says Elena Colombo, artist and president of Fire Features.
Operated with a manual pilot, or electronic ignition system, the sculptural wave is 7 ft. long by 20 inches high. It can be customized in size, and comes in five finishes – mild steel, Cor-Ten steel, stainless steel, copper, or bronze. It can be further customized by adding a metal, stone, or concrete base.
This piece was done for the Buttercup Design Group, and a private client on Shelter Island.
