Common Errors to Avoid
A number of articles have written of “stainless steel firebowls with a rust finish” or described the bowls as “hand-forged” etc. I don’t expect everyone to be familiar with metalworking specifics, but it is important to use the right terms to describe the firebowls so that potential customers are not disappointed if they thought they were ordering something else.
How Firebowls are made: Sculptural Firebowls ARE hand-cut (or fabricated) from 100% recycled industrial tanks. THEY ARE NOT: Cast, welded, forged, spun, stamped or machined.
What firebowls are made from: The material my firebowls are made from IS carbon steel (also known as mild steel). IT IS NOT: Iron, wrought iron, stainless steel, copper, tin, aluminum or any other metal. (The only exception is The Victorian Flatpack Architectural Fire Feature which IS made from stainless steel).
Who makes them: John T. Unger, not John Tunger (people often mistake the initial for part of my surname).
Where to get Firebowls: John T. Unger Sculptural Firebowls are available from: www.johntunger.com. It’s best to link to the front page of the site to avoid broken links if other pages are moved or retired.
Preferred Branding: Please reference the firebowl collection as a whole as “John T. Unger Sculptural Firebowls” for the first use. Each individual design of firebowl should be referenced by the name used in my online store, e.g., The Great Bowl O’ Fire, or The Big Bowl O’ Zen.
