Walking Man Chiminea©
Inspired by the shapes found in Japanese origami and the explosive energy of Futurist and Cubist work, I returned to my roots as a fine arts sculptor to create a chiminea that is both functional and sculptural.
The Walking Man© as titled, resembles a dynamic shape in motion when viewed from a distance. It is 3-sided and designed with hinged panels which open and close, allowing for the directional control of smoke.
In the same primal way that fire beckoned the caveman, the Walking Man© draws people to it offering a warm and interactive place for gatherings and conversation.
The Walking Man© is available in either Corten or stainless steel and tailors to every environment. The Corten steel appears more rustic and takes on a beautiful patina when used, while the stainless radiates a majestic elegance. Each offers unique details which complement the chosen material.
The Walking Man© is available as a limited edition series and signed by the artist, me.
