The FLAMING Lotus Girls


It’s common practice to say that someone or something is “on fire” when they’re doing really well.  Well, we found a group that is on fire not only in the figurative but the literal sense as well.  They are the Flaming Lotus Girls (FLG)and they make sculptures that are, well, on fire.

These sculptures are made from any combination of: “steel, stainless steel, copper, glass, wood, light, and fire“.  Their works have been exhibited in a variety of shows across several different continents.  Anyone is welcome to join in the fabrication process if they are able and willing to participate in the group’s Wednesday night meetings at the Box Shop in San Fransisco.  To see more of the FLGs’ works, go to the gallery link on their website.

The Flaming Lotus Girls regularly exhibit their sculptures at the Burning Man annual event in Black Rock City, Nevada.  For more information, you can visit the Burning Man website.

My personal favorite of the Flaming Lotus Girls’ projects has to be this one below.  I have no idea how they did it, but the caption on their website reads “Mutopia gas bomb explosions“.

    I’m one of the Flaming Lotus Girls, thanks for the article. If you would help us out by crediting the photographers that would be great. We go to great lengths to make sure the amazing photographers that take pictures of our work get credit for their images, it would be thoughtful for you to do the same. Top photo is by Caroline (Mills) Miller (also one of the Flaming Lotus GIrls) of our work the Angel of the Apocalypse. The bottom photo is by Jason Chinn, this image is capturing the outrageous pyrotechnics done by Black Rock FX.
