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“.
