Description The steel Fire Cone by Floyd Elzinga is allowed to rust and take on the color of a pine cone. It is both an outdoor sculpture and working fire pit. Pop Art inspired, this playful and functional artwork also reflects the nature of some species of coniferous trees that have evolved to produce cones that open and germinate after a forest fire.

Canadian sculptor Floyd Elzinga’s work merges iconic imagery from the Canadian landscape – the maple leaf, pine branch and pine cone – with Pop art to create works that are both playful and inspiring. From his studio on the Niagara Escarpment, Elzinga creates unique indoor and outdoor steel and bronze sculptures that resonate with a distinctly Canadian perspective. It has been said that “Floyd does in three dimensions what the Group of Seven did in two.”

Elzinga has exhibited across Ontario and in Alberta and Nova Scotia. His work has been commissioned for public and private spaces in Canada, the US and internationally. A branch and leaf that bends in the wind was commissioned by Global Affairs Canada for the APEC Park in Da Nang, Vietnam. His corten and stainless steel sculptures can be found in the City of Lacombe, Alberta, Kings Christian Collegiate in Oakville, Loretto College, Toronto, The Groves Welcome Center in Humble, TX, the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Toronto to name just a few. Elzinga holds a degree in Earth Sciences from McMaster University, a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and a Certificate of Art Fundaments from Sheridan College of Applied Arts & Technology
