Temple of Inner Fire is the collaborative sculpture built by the Introduction to Studio class at Linfield College during the 2012 January term. On April 20, 2012 it was burned to the ground in a celebration to complete the cycle of collaboration and creation. The Introduction to Studio class included students Michael K. Carrillo, Nicholas Fairhart, Abe Harder-Cattell, Sherilyn Harrington, Bryce Hayunga, Cameron Howser, Marina Jablonski, Ashley Kimi, Tim Marl, Joey Paysinger, Cole Perry, Chloe Shields, Kate Straube, Addison Wisthoff, and Dawn Wyruchowski.
The pyre located in the top portion of the sculpture was added shortly before the burn, with the intent of helping to direct the flames up through the top of the sculpture.
