For centuries fire has been the central element around which humans have gathered. From inception people assembled around fire for warmth and for safety, to prepare food and to eat. And while modern life has provided us comforts unimaginable to our ancestors, our intrigue with fire and reasoning for gathering around it are resolute. Fire elements in the landscape become the place to decompress and conversate, share a glass of wine or a smore. Fire adds an intimacy and drama to an outdoor space. An opportunity that is lost without it’s presence.
