This linear bonfire, designed by London sculptor Cathy Azria, is a dramatic construction of steel rods. Each piece is custom and made to fit into any opening. The “burning branches” glow and emit crackling and popping sounds as the steel expands, providing a sensory impact that is unique each time it is lit.

Now they are year-round focal points in our living spaces.” Whether they provide solace and comfort on a cold winter evening or a stunning visual display, we are enticed by the ever transforming pieces that Cathy has created.
