Waiting for someone to light my fire

Who would have thought that a fire pot could be so beautiful? The British Museum has two Japanese fire pots on display at the moment, and they are well worth a visit.

The fire pots were designed to be “both functional and aesthetically beautiful” – and they completely fulfil the brief. I would love to see what a bunch of designers could do with this as inspiration.

If you are in the area, the pots are just to the right of the entrance. Swing by and take a look.
