Spectacular, fiery “Tree Of Life” at Telluride Fire Festival

This fabulous interactive sculptural “tree” created by David Mechtly,  has 18 flaming leaves. Guests will delight in the ability to actually make the tree spew fire into the night sky.

Originally created for the Denver Regional Burning Man event, Apogaea, this elaborate sculpture will travel to Telluride for the December 3 outdoor finale at the end of the box canyon.

Inspiring, spectacular, and fantastical…the Telluride Fire Festival will take place from December 2 -4, 2022.
