The Fire Bowls are the latest in her ‘Reflections on Artifacts’, a broad sculptural project initially intended as creating works based on primitive methods, philosophies, technologies and artifacts. “There are so many ways of knowing and we are left only remnants,” says Beletic. “The series is intended to be in dialogue with the strong connection that runs through the endeavors of human beings and the many ways of knowing.” These new works mark a development in concept, departing from tradition and form, creating new works based on bringing these ancestral inspirations into the modern age. The Fire Bowls are intended as ceremonial objects for the purposes of holding small ceremonial fires.

“I feel like all of my work not only has this grounding in earth and humanity, but also in a sense of party, celebration, and vibrancy.”
