Princess Fire

It’s funny to me how some things become so much more interesting when they are scaled down. Bigger is not always better and less is certainly more.  I find that particularly true when considering these diminutive firebowls by Ponkk.

This little guy (known as the Frog King) is only 9 inches wide and just a bit over a foot tall.   It burns briquets and small sticks and would be perfect for an outdoor party (where I think a bubbling pot of fondue sitting on top would be an excellent addition).Ponkk mini fireplaces for the garden via

Slightly bigger (but still quite tailored) is the ‘Bud’ pit (modeled after a budding flower).  I imagine a pair of these on plinths framing a path or at the corners of a patio.

But I think my most favorite is this little princess pit (which, for obvious reasons is called the Crown).  It is a foot wide and just barely over a foot tall.  Perfect for the center of a table and easy to move around to where ever you might want a sweet little flame.  Ponkk mini fireplaces for the garden via

Ponkk has some other interesting fire features that are well worth checking out.  All are handmade, quite reasonably priced, and each expresses a unique charm.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
