Showroom Spotlight: Fireballs Light Up Landscapes / by Matt Pezzente


Just in time for spring, architect and artist Sandra Vlock, AIA, Principal of Arbonies King Vlock, unveils a new outdoor accessory transformed out of antique mooring balls—The Fireball. The wood-burning fireballs are custom designed and handcrafted by a team of artisans including Connecticut-based metal artist Leslie Prodis and David Wilkerson of Wilkerson Iron who plasma-cuts the final design.

Approximately five feet in diameter and weighing 300 pounds, the Fireball serves as an intricate sculpture by day then provides warmth and light by night. “They are unusual accessories that make grand statements and stand out from other outdoor fire features,” says Vlock.
