  • (1888PressRelease) May 10, 2013 - Unger's line of Sculptural Firebowls have been commissioned by world class hospitality properties including RumFire, Waikiki; SouthWest Porch, Bryant Park, NYC; The Canyons Resort in Park City, UT and dozens more. Frankford Hall, a Philadelphia, PA, biergarten found that Unger's Big Bowl O' Zen design drove thousands of sales of s'more kits. "We were seeing such tremendous draw for s'mores, we decided to add a second firebowl, then a third" said Greg Root, Frankford Hall General Manager. Restaurant patrons enjoy the firebowls' warmth and social atmosphere while also creating a fun treat.

    Participants of the Expo will have the opportunity to view and order The Great Bowl O' Fire at Booth 2171 during the May 15-17 Expo. Unger's other Sculptural Firebowl designs will also be available for order from Frontera, and can be viewed in oversized catalogs.

    John T. Unger handcrafts his art from 100% recycled, American made steel. "If my job as an artist is to fill the world with 'more things,'" said Unger, "I feel it is equally important that I reclaim materials from the waste stream to make space for my work."

    The durability of the steel incorporated into the firebowl designs delivers long outdoor life as well as low maintenance; a welcome feature for public locations. Sculptural Firebowls carry a Dynasty Guarantee. "I design for permanence," said Unger. "My firebowls will last for generations, not just a single lifetime." His designs can be used with wood fires or can be converted to propane or natural gas with simple, drop-in conversion kits.

    The fire bowl designs lend themselves to creativity in installation as well. Adorning walls and water features, the combination of earth elements offers a striking image and a sought-after entertainment component for contract facilities.
