Chimineas, also spelled, chimeneas, are open fire garden heaters. It is believed that Mexican tribesmen developed chimeneas hundreds if not thousands of years ago as a means of providing heat and as a vessel for cooking and baking. The original chiminea was designed to keep the rain off the fire and the family warm using merely a couple of sticks.
I created this abstract image while seeing an assortment of chimineas and other large clay, terra cotta, and ceramic vases and pots in a store in Nuevo Progresso, Mexico.
