Eco Friendly Metal Art : Fire Bowls , Fireplaces and Pits Handcrafted in the USA

Check this out! Functional and reclaimed!

Where I come from, sitting around the fire pit at night is a good way to unwind and spend time with loved ones. What better way to have it than a "fire bowl" made from upcycled and recycled metal products?  If you look closely, you will see these are welded from outstretched cable wire! 

About the Artist: Erik Hendrickson has been an apprentice at the Trenton Atelier under the direction of former Johnson Atelier artist Peter Abrams since 2010. He finds the wire rope material a challenge and calling to work with; he studied Civil Engineering at The College of New Jersey prior to uncovering his inner artist. A sense of industrial architecture pervades his engineer-inspired creations, composed of predominantly found objects and materials.

According to Erik,  "Each FireBowl by Modern Metal Work® is truly a functional work of art. Unlike mass produced products from volume manufacturers, our FireBowls are individually hand-crafted by skilled artisans at our Trenton Atelier, located in the heart of Trenton, New Jersey, USA.  Our FireBowls are unique, lasting and eco-conscious. If you are concerned about the conservation of our planet’s limited resources, you will be pleased to know that most all of the materials used to create our FireBowls are reclaimed from industrial sources."

 What's not to love? In case you are wondering, he also does custom fire screens, too.

  4. Very nice! I am A welder and bought A rural retirement home about 3 year's ago. In the pole barn was several pallets of wire rope that came off an old drag line. I was going to scrap it but now you have given mean idea on what to do with it.
    I'm sure my attempt won't be anywhere as artistic as yours but should be good enough to burn the deadfalls on my property.
