Soapstone Fire Bowl
Brass, soapstone and ceramic firebowl
Exhibited in Tappan's group show, Dressed Up Normal, in Los Angeles. For more information on Dressed Up Normal, please visit our journal HERE.
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.
18 x 18 x 22 inches
The work comes with a Certification of Authenticity signed by the Co-Founder of Tappan

Q. Describe your work in three words:

Tappan invites you to explore our curated collection of artworks focusing on art objects.
Framing & Mounting
Our frames are produced from the best quality wood, primarily from Italy. Each is custom cut and assembled by hand to fit your art. Hanging hardware included!
THIN GALLERY FRAME
This modern profile was designed for artists and photographers. Narrow on the front and deep on the sides, our slim mouldings provide a clean, sharp frame for your art, and allows all focus to be on your gorgeous work.
3/4" wide; 1 1/8" deep
UV - PROTECTIVE ACRYLIC
Our acrylic is more expensive than glass, but we use it because it’s clearer, far more impact resistant, and protects your art against UV rays. Framing-grade acrylic has become a new standard in framing because of its “clear” benefits.
THE FULL BLEED
Works are framed flush with the edge of your print without a mat. Request border modifications and spacers, which keep the work from touching the glass.
Adds a white core mat with a bevel cut opening to the edge of your print. If your work has a signature or edition numbering, we will automatically mat around it unless otherwise specified.
We use 4-ply, conservation-grade, acid-free mat board. We match whites and off-whites to your exact piece. Acid-free materials protect your art from yellowing or becoming brittle.
Floating a piece allows for a full view of the face and sides of the artwork. Floating is recommended for original drawings and paintings or any piece produced on specially trimmed paper.
Recently featured in Vogue and Architectural Digest (in the home of Eva Chen), Beletic’s practice includes large, abstract paintings, neon sculptures, sewn textile flags, and site specific collaborative experiences that incorporate her music practice. Her work explores the perception of human joy and celebration, through the lens of rock n roll, ancient traditions, latent instincts and sensual experiences.
