Leadership In Art

The Flaming Lotus Girls (FLG) are a female-driven group of artists formed in 2000 to create our first sculpture, the Flaming Lotus. Our sculptures are composed of steel , stainless steel, copper, glass, wood, light, and fire. Our flames blaze in sizes ranging from 2 inches to 150+ feet

The Flaming Lotus Girls (FLG) are a female-driven group of artists formed in 2000 to create our first sculpture, the Flaming Lotus. Our sculptures are composed of steel , stainless steel, copper, glass, wood, light, and fire. Our flames blaze in sizes ranging from 2 inches to 150+ feet.

For the past seven years we have grown and thrived, creating installations for Burning Man and exhibiting at events globally including: Toronto Wintercity (2010), Fire Arts Exposition: Art on Fire, Fire Arts Festival at the Crucible in Oakland; Festival of Lights Robodock in Amsterdam (2005,2007); and the Big Day Out in Australia (Jan 2007).

This is an example of their leadership qualities through innovation art.

The first is of it during the day (so it is “off” and not burning).  That is a pile of kindling wood in the center, and at night these vertical metal blades are all “on fire”.  This is a great example of how elaborate and how much effort the artists are setting these up, just for a one week long festival.  NOTE ADDED LATER: I am told that the artists are an organization called “Flaming Lotus Girls”, and here is their website that mentions this art: http://flaminglotus.com/ornith/

Below is the same piece of art as above, from the same perspective, but at night.  The metal blade posts are normally on “low flame”, but the artist (from the group “Flaming Lotus Girls”) is somewhere around pulling triggers and any one of the posts can ERUPT into a geyser of flame like the one in the center below.  One of the funnier parts of this are all the people are sitting on the kindling.  Also, this is essentially a dance club at night, with dance music playing loudly and people can stay nice and toasty warm dancing around in between these flaming blade metal posts.

At night you get this burst of light, a huge wave of heat, and a big feeling of how powerful this piece of art is.

Several of the metal blade posts can erupt at once, here is one eruption I caught in a photo.

So as you can see why this would be an amazing work of art.  You can see the leader in this and we continue to try to inspire and maybe you might be there next one we are talking about.
