Padilla Designs would like to welcome you to another installment of our blog series “Featured Projects“. This week we would like to share with you some of our custom fire sculptures as well as the connection Hawaii has with this beautiful element – fire.
Fun Fact: In Hawaiian mythology Pele is the Goddess of fire, lightening, wind and volcanoes. She is the mother of the Hawaiian islands giving birth to the island chain from beneath the oceans surface through the explosion of fire and rock “Lava”. Pele has become the most visible of the mythical gods and goddesses of Hawaiian history. Dwelling deep in the craters of the Big Island’s Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii’s youngest island, she is known in ancient chants as “She-Who-Shapes-The-Sacred-Land”.
To Padilla Designs, fire is a way of life. It is both creative and destructive. It is the only element that cannot exist in its physical form without consuming another element. In order to use fire’s positive qualities, the artists at Padilla Designs must control the element’s negative qualities, harnessing the power of its creation and controlling the power of its destruction. Through this alchemical art, they create an array of beautiful masterpieces including an assortment of custom Fire Features.
The sculptures pictured below is a collection of fire features Padilla Designs has created over the years. Each with its own unique design and function – from our signature tiki torches and fire bowls to the most exquisite custom designs.
“If you can think it, we can make it” is the mindset behind Padilla Designs. There is no creative project too big for this team of artists.
Adding fire to our custom sculptures is where function and form fuse together to create the perfect ambiance for your residential or commercial property. Padilla Designs’ custom fire features add warmth and light to any space – transforming the sculpture from daytime fine art to night-time functionality.
