This page is for fire pits and you will find some very unique fire pits here in the near future. Starting with this one! The details will follow in a few days about this fire pit.
The fire pit below has Ford Blue, Ford Blue Reflective, V Blue, V Blue Reflective, Turquoise Toppings, Deep Royal Toppings and Copper Blue Topper on a bed of 1/4" and 1/2" Starfire
THESE WILL BE OUR NEWEST FIRE PITS WITH GRANITE TOPS AND OF COURSE GLASSEL IN THE FIRE PIT AND YOUR CHOICE OF COLOR. THESE WILL BE NATURAL GAS OR PROPANE BOTTLE FUELED. WE WILL POST MORE DETAILS IN A FEW DAYS.
The fire pit/ fire table has Blue and Blue Reflective in the center.
This is a 4 piece glass surrounding a fire pit.
The pictures below are of a self install fire pit with crushed lava rock and a Clear base
1/2" to 3/4" lava rock is use just to the bottom of the ring.
If you want a higher center then pour a little more filler on top of the ring.
Now we will pour the crushed lava rock (1/4" to 3/8") over the filler as this will stop the glass from falling through the lava rock.
Finish shaping and pour the glass
This is a 36" fire pit which requires 56 lbs for a 1" cover and 80 lbs for a 1 1/2" cover.
We used the 1" method, 56 lbs which as you can see works just fine and no you can't see though the glass.
The second step will be to add color and toppers which we should post in a few days and night time pictures with the fire on
Here we are showing you how to properly install a fire pit with glass whether you are using a 1”, 1½” or even the 2” method. The less glass over the crushed lava rock the more likely someone can disturb the top layer and then the lava rock could show through. We recommend starting with less and then you can always add more if you need to. As you can see we had our customer do the 1” method and it looks just fine. Now he is going to add toppers for accents and color. Don't be fooled by someone trying to get you to purchase more than you actually need. Give us a call and we can help guide you in the right direction
The fire pit below has a Clear base with Azurlite and Ford Blue on top. Then it was Topped with Dark Red Orange Topper, Yellow Amber Topper and Amber Topping.
A simple fire pit with Azurlite below
This fire pit has Clear, Chunky Clear, Starfire and 1/2 Starfire and a water fall going into the fire, pretty cool!
The fire pit below was a traditional lava rock fire pit
Now filled with lava rock (crushed 1/4" 3/8") over 3/8" 1/2" crushed. Remember the larger is under the smaller to keep the glass from falling through.
Above a flex line was installed to raise the ring to the surface. You don't want to leave the ring at the bottom unless you want an explosion or if you want to get rid of the significant other.
Pour more crushed lava to make the desired shape of the fire pit and test burn for flame pattern.
Starfire base and a few other colors were added
Azurlite, Scarlet Topper, Red Topping, Ice, Copper Blue Topper, Copper Blue is a chameleon as when it gets hot it turns green and when it cools it turns back to blue!
Patterns, can you do better?
Great job and very creative.
The 4 pictures are of Multi Mix in a simple but nice fire pit. Multi Mix is off of our test table in the showroom which everyone who comes in can sample mix their fireplace glass and after the table fills up we then have multi mix. There is usually a lot of Toppers and Toppings in the Multi Mix.
The fire pit below is in Boise! It has
Evergreen and Reflective
Azurlite and Reflective
Ford Blue and Reflective. Looks great.
Makes me want to go to Boise!
The fire table below has 1/2 Chunky Clear, Amber and Pink Rosa.
The pictures below are from the Lure Lounge at the Wynn in Las Vegas. This was done for Steve Wynn with all Gold. This was taken without the flame on and when we return we will have pictures of the fire pit lite up
Bronze, Black, Emerald Green, Reflective Green, Black Reflective and Gold
The fire pit below has a Clear base with 1/4" Starfire and 1/2" Starfire, Yellow Amber Topper. Cobalt Blue Topper and Emerald Green Topper. The earth as the back yard and a lot of friends, wow!
The fire pit below has a half round 4 piece stainless steel ring custom made to fit the shape of the fire pit.
The tables below were made for the Marriott in Boise Idaho
Marriott Hotel Boise Idaho
This is a pro-to type fire table that when finished will be wrapped in wire and finished in smooth high heat concrete mix with a 48" fire bowl in the middle. There will be a 6" brushed metal finished edge to cover under table lights. The table is 60" wide and 24" tall. These will be delivered to Boise Idaho, Marriott Corp. We will post finished pictures as soon as we can.
A brushed finish 8" edge was added along with a touch sensor to turn the lights on under the table. It is a 3 position sensor (high, medium and low).
Now the high heat concrete is applied and shaped.
As it turns out there is a 36" triple ring under the lava rock and we are down sizing it to a 24" double ring. As you can see when the wind blows the fire get a little bit close to the edge.
If you had a drink near the edge it would be a little bit warmer now. The sides will be dropped about 3 inches and the center raised about 3" and a 24" ring will finish it off. We will post the pictures of the glass and ICE when it is installed in a few days.
Here are the finished table pictures
We use Clear base with lots of our ICE ICE ICE!
The fireplace below has Bronze, Bronze Reflective , Ice Ice Ice and Clear Diamonds
The Fire pit/ Fireplace is in the entry, pretty cool.
The fire pit below will be aired in early of 2008. The fire pit was filmed by Yard Crashers (www.IdeaFactory.tv ) in Sacramento, California. A subsidiary of HGTV and Pie Town Productions. We will post air times as soon as we have them. But for now here are a few shots from the filming. Yard Crashers is a new program from HGTV who do complete makeovers in your back yard. Please contact www.IdeaFactory.tv for details on how you can get involved!
The first project we are working on is the Maryland Hotel (Ivy Hotel now) Roof Top Fire Pit in downtown San Diego, California on the 7th floor roof top!
It measures 60" across, 30" tall and 144" long!
The fire table/ fire pit will and a 5' x 12' surface top in smooth concrete with a 16" x 120" stainless steel fire tray of to one side. We will post pictures as the project grows on.
Te fire pit is constructed with a new flexible track and about 3,000 screws, 240' of galvanized channel, 450 welds, 600 lbs of GFRC/ Wonder Board and coated in smooth texture concrete.
This was just before delivery, dry fit.
Once on the roof top the two halves were attached and the pan was installed
There were two burners and two controls installed
The glass is going in after the position of the fire table was adjusted. Pictures will be here soon!
If you look at the walls of the roof top you can see most of San Diego.
The table now has had a different coat of colored concrete applied and a granite top. The glass that is installed is Starfire. The Hotel plumber was not very careful as he mixed the lava with the glass and now it looks like salt and pepper. We will be taking a trip to San Diego to fix this mixing issue because we would like to post finished pictures of the fire table burning at night time.
Below is just a nice propane fire table with Multi Mix
We will be posting different ideas on fire pit covers we can build or design for your fire pit.
This fire pit is in Pasadena California. The base is Ford Blue and V Blue topped with both colors in Reflective. Then weTopped it with Cobalt Blue Topper, Copper Blue Topper and Lagoon Topper. Then we made a simple tie cover to keep the pit looking great all of the time when it is not in use.
The fire pit below is in the Palace of Qatar and this was commissioned for the King of Qatar. The fire pit is a propane/ butane fueled fire pit and it was installed by Gasco of Qatar. They didn't understand the glass so they opted to use lava rock. Now they (the King) have ordered the glass and if we can get the pictures we will post them.
We did propane for the King and there are no issues! Awesome marble!
The fire pit below was built by Charlie Helms in North Carolina using our FPPK (fire pit propane kit) burner. This is a propane fire pit with a lava filler. Charlie is now ready to order the glass. Check it out, great job Charlie!
The fire pit is covered to protect it from whatever may fall. Great job!
The fire pit below was build by Mike Phillips ( a customer). First he ran a propane line to the fire pit area and then blocked his fire pit into shape. We use a FPPK (fire pit propane kit) in an aluminum pan 24" x 24" with a double 18" double stainless steel ring.The glass that was used was Gray with a Gray base and Gray Reflective on top to add sparkle.
Below you can see the placement of the thermo coupler and safety pilot light used for propane.
Below on the right side the controls were installed in the bricks.
The fire pit below is a typical fire pit with large lava rocks.We removed most of the larger pieces and poured a few hundred pounds of crushed lava rock to cover the larger lava.
Then we installed 2 18" stainless steel rings and just covered then with even more crushed lava.
Then we poured canary Yellow Topping and here you have it.
The fire pit below was designed and built by Jeffrey Stoutenborough in Santa Barbara, California.
He started with a Bronze base,
Bronze Reflective on top,
Ice Ice Ice.
Dark Red Orange and
Blue Green and a few large rocks left in place.
The fire pit below has a Clear base glass,
Cobalt Blue Topper,
Copper Blue Topper and
Azurlite base glass for one very nice fire pit and back yard!
The Terra Cota pot below is fed by natural gas and was Topped with a 1 1/2" layer of Clear over a bed of crushed lava rock.
The gas line was drilled from the bottom of the deck and the pot was placed on top
The fire pit below is one of several Katrina builds in the San Francisco Bay area. She will build anything thing you can imagine in here field of design. Please contact us so we an put you in touch with Katrina.
The fire pit below she used a Clear base glass.
The fire pit below has a Black base with Black Reflective on top.Not too great of a fire pit picture but you get the idea. Even with Black as a base glass you will only see the color of glass under the fire. The flames don't change color nor does the glass, but the glass is what will reflect the light at night.
The fire pit below is in Newport Beach California at Newport Coast Development. We replaced a hot spark ignition which did not work, with our IPI (intermittent Pilot Ignition) electronic ignition system. The fire pit was 18" deep and 48" across. This is what was installed:
1 IPI Electronic Ignition for Natural Gas connected to a 1" gas line
1300 lbs crushed lava
144 lbs Clear base glass for a 2" fill over the crushed lava
36" triple stainless steel burner ring
20 lbs Clear Topper
20 lbs Cobalt Blue Topper
20 lbs Copper Blue Topper
We will show your from beginning to end:
Looked pretty nasty when we got there
We started to pour the crushed lava with our electronic ignition being raised to the surface by the lava rock
We built a double box to protect the equipment in the fire pit as well
The ring is now installed
The electronics can be accessed if ever there was a failure of the equipment and you can access it from the surface. Before the equipment was 20 inches below the surface, not a very good idea!
Now we poured the 144 lbs of Clear base over the crushed lava
We only did the fire pit, not the view. That came with the home. But one very impressive view!
Then we spread the Clear Topper, Cobalt Blue Topper and Copper Blue Topper over the Clear base
As you have looked at all of our pictures we would like you to know we use Crystals as our Toppers and Toppings. We don't use "Recycled" glass, ever! We are actually the only company that produces Crystals for fireplace and fire pits.
We tried to get pictures of it burning, but the flames just didn't show. Look above and you can see a flicker in the daylight. Actually the flames were over 16" tall but you can't see this in daylight.The contractor will get a few night pictures when they and if they can.
On this page (as if you needed another page) We are going to show you how to build a basic fire pit for your deck/ back yard.
This was built by Glenn Harvey of British Columbia.
This first picture is the frame he had started with.
You can make one from metal studs, aluminum studs, etc. Anything non flammable.
Wrap it with wonder board or durock/ cement board.
Below you can also wrap it with wire for better adhesion to the backer board.
This fire pit was natural gas. We also manufacture the burners for propane. Well, we are the only ones who actually manufacture propane burners for your projects.
Below you can see the gas connection coming up from the deck. Glenn used a pan but he also could of used an aluminum/ stainless steel base plate as well.
The stacker stone is now being applied.
As you can see below the trimming valve is installed on the side. You would be surprised on how many plumbers don't think of this little detail, a valve to turn it on or off. I have seen the valves installed inside of the pit or not even at all. You also need to be careful as to not have a gas line installed that is too small for the application.
Now the stone and cap are done, great and simple job!
Below you an see the larger filler lava rock was installed. If a flat plate were to have been used you wouldn't need the larger filler lava rock base.
Below our crushed lava was used to cover the larger lava rock to insure the glass does not fall through. This makes an even base. What ever shape you make the lava is the shape the glass will take.
Below we installed Water White base glass (32 lbs) for a 1 1/2" cover!
The stone on the side of the fire pit used was to match the stone on the house as well. Looks awesome!
Below is just the Water White before the colors were added.
The colors that were added are as follows:
Azurlite and Azurlite reflective for the sky area.
Brilliant Yellow R20F4 Topper for the sun center
Scarlett G072F3 Topping for the suns rays
Orange R140F4 Topper for the ring around the suns center
Emerald Green 1417 Topping for the bottom trees/ grass?
Deep Blue 2507 Topper mixed in around the Azurlite in the sky area.
If you notice below the center of the sun, it changes when it get hot! This one of our chameleons that change when the glass gets hot. If you look real close at the Orange Topper (next to the suns center) as well, it turns a bright cinnamon red when it get hot also! All of our chameleons will be posted when we get a chance. This is just another one of our product lines that we have not had time to further promote.
Above is the fire burning and
below the fire was just turned off.
Glenn spent a few hours placing all of the glass to make this very cool scene. So don't just think you can just throw it on and it knows were to go. Very creative!
The fire pit below is a custom fire pit in Covina California with one really great back yard design. This back yard was designed for great parties. If you look and see the glass wall with the etching you will also see the fire pit in the back ground. The glass that was used: Gray and Clear Pyrite base glass Gold Reflective Copper Blue Topper This is one really good looking table.
The fire pit below had the wrong type of burner let alone the location of the burner.
The burner must be with in 2" of the ultimate top of the surface of the fire pit. Filling the pit with gas and then trying to light it? Nothing good can become of this. We installed a #304 stainless steel "H" burner, covered it with crushed lava (1/4" / 3/8") over the larger lava rock. This is what keeps it from trickling to the bottom. Them we topped it with Starfire base glass. Then Eric is trying to decide which colors/ topper he should add if any at all.
Wrong type of burner above.
Our "H" burner below. Watch the flame pattern as the crushed lava covers the burners.
Now for the bid decision, more colors and which ones?
The next few pictures are from New York by JaiCrandall for Tom Morgan. We can hep transform an eye soar to a place of enjoyment. Just watch!
November 10, 2009 Hello Ed, my name is JaiCrandall and I live in central NY. I have a good friend (Tom Morgan) that has a patio that he generally uses wood to throw some heat for his quests when he entertains. Unfortunately, as I'm sure you know, the smoke can really get to you after a while. This is a very high end home and he entertains for some very important people. He would like to eliminate the wood a replace them with some propane inserts. It doesn't have to look like a fireplace, but most importantly, it needs to throw some intense heat. Pictures 1,2 and 3 are the front views of the fire pits and as you will notice they are not square ( each picture is labeled with the dimensions), they don't need to stay like they are, so if you want to make them square you can. Just go by the front measurement. Hopefully you can design something that will fit there needs. I am sure that they are going to want electric ignition, and you can try to place the control valves in the front. Also, with the good New York weather, you want want to have covers for each unit. Thank You so much for your time and I look forward to working with you to complete this project.
JaiCrandall July 3, 2010 Now here are the finished pictures on the property. Very nice! Hey Ed, Here are some pictures of the burners that I installed. They look great and they are very happy with their performance. Also, I believe that I may have a few more people interested in something similar to what I did for Tom Morgan. Have a great forth weekend and I will talk to you soon.
That's what I said when I first saw the project, YUK!!!! I tried to figure out what to do????
Jai came up with the Stainless Steel hollow base design and we went to work.
This is a happy ending!
Our propane burners were set to 100,000 btu's each for maximum heat. The glass that we used was Bronze Rust Copper.
