Item details

Three Great Bowl O’ Fire 37 Inch Sculptural Firebowls™ adorn the roof top pool at Parc Blue.

One of my favorite things about this firebowl installation is the blue glass used as a gravel below the firebowls— that rich field of blue really intensifies the orange of the flames! The firebowls are often lit up for guests during wine tastings on the pool patio as the sun sets.

Waikiki Parc Hotel is the chicest boutique address in Waikiki featuring urban tropical interiors, rich ebony hardwoods, illuminated glass walls, undulating acrylic panels and selective works of bold art combined with innovative aesthetic technology and warm, personalized service. The property boasts a seductive roof top pool called Parc Blue, a sophisticated hospitality center called Connect, a contemporary conference center called Merge and the hottest restaurant in Oahu, Nobu Waikiki.

John T. Unger is a sculptor and mosaic artist in Hudson, NY. Best known for his Sculptural Firebowls, Unger was the first to cut propane tanks into decorative fire features.



Self-taught as a visual artist, Unger’s training in poetry at Interlochen Arts Academy, Naropa, and Stone Circle brings a depth and lyricism to his visual works. Music, myth and metaphor are woven into his work, a foundation of story and song. Using a variety of media, he seeks to marry construction and context. Materials and techniques are chosen for their impact on narrative, meaning and nuance as much as for form or function.



To make art that will last, he looks to the past for examples that still delight after millennia— believing the simplest forms are most likely to remain relevant. Natural history, music, literature and ancient art are his strongest inspirations.



From performing his poetry on stage at Lollapalooza in 1996, to bartering a mosaic to a bank as a down payment for a house and studio, to displaying an American flag created from over 20,000 Budweiser bottle caps at the 2015 Stagecoach Music Festival, Unger’s art practice has been as much about making good stories as making good art.
