Flaming Paper Airplane Fire Pits.
Here’s your chance to not only see paper airplanes built out of steel, but have them warm you up by fire as well!
Hanging fire pits are a first for the festival. The idea is to create seemingly light and fragile works that not only convey a sense of nostalgia, but warms body and soul as well. All the paper airplane fire pits will be for sale after the show.
Jill Torberson is an artist, licensed contractor, and a certified welder. Weld Metal Works aims to bridge the gap between art and fabrication. These works are beautifully designed, structurally sound, and always designed with consideration to place. Sometimes the works can be seemingly fragile, though not so. Steel is the perfect material to realize this vision of lightness and strength. Steelwork does not need to be massive or heavy. The idea is to design and fabricate artwork that appears to float, is light in feel, yet able to create mass and volume in space.
