One of Lump's favourite private commissions is the Fire Ring. Originally designed as a free standing sculpture consisting of three main components. The outer ring, the inner ring and the ethanol fire burner. Standing approximately 2.4 meters tall the outer ring is made from arched Corten steel segments with a natural rusted finish, these segments are welded together to make one large outer skin. The inner ring is constructed from convex stainless steel segments that are welded together to create an interior surface that is also fitted and welded to the outer skin making one solid structure. Fitted inside the base of the Fire Ring Sculpture is an ethanol fire burner. When lit, the stainless steel reflects the light of the flame illuminating the surface of the inner ring and the internal space within the sculpture.
