Why Johnny can’t argue

Great bowls of fire

This absolutely rocks: Behold the “Great Bowl O’ Fire” — a fire pit made out of recycled steel and accessorized with hot-rod-inspired metal flames! It’s a new work by longtime Collision Detection reader/commenter and artist John T. Unger, and yes, it’s fully functional — as you can see from a picture he posted, with pit hosting a roaring bonfire. Even better, John has also made a set of matching garden torches. You can buy ‘em all from his site.

Damn, now I want one of these so I can grill me some meat in style! Of course, I’d also need, y’know, a back yard.

(Thanks to John for this one!)
