The 3 lower pictures have a Clear base with Ice on top. This fireplace also has a new surround frame that we now manufacture also found in the Surrounds page.
The fire pit below has Ford Blue topped with Ice.
The fireplace below has Azurlite with Ice as a Topper.
This was a 2" installation with lava rock and sand as a base.
The pictures below we will be showing how to do a 3" install (all glass), a surround painted black and a triple burner with Ice and Starfire.
Above and below are a typical of what most fireplaces look like (yuk)!
Above and below with a triple burner, some cleaning and a little bit of paint.
Above and below we installed an aluminum surround painted black. Only Starfire is installed for now.
It's hard to see but we did install Ice on top of the Starfire. If you noticed we had to pile a small mound in the front to cover the massive pipe connection. Did you even notice it in the first few pictures?
With the surround it make the room. We are proud of our inventions and ideas because our customers are always pleased.
The fire pit above and below have Gray, Gray Reflective, Ice and Red Topper.
Here is a fireplace before and after with Clear and a splash of Ice
The 2 fireplaces below are the same fireplace! This fireplace started out with a brick face and Clear glass
After a little black granite and some Clear Ice, we have a very nice fireplace!
This fireplace belongs to Carl Herkes
The fireplace below has Evergreen, Evergreen Reflective and Topped with Ice.
Before and after, big difference?
This next self install is a 10 picture install with :
Azurlite, Clear, Blue Green, Blue Green Reflective, Ice Clear, Ice Blue. Very nice fireplace.
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 fireplace below has Starfire and Ice. This is a complete makeover and turned out very nice.
The fireplace below is in Georgia and we will explain as we move down
The first 2 pictures are of how it used to look, nice logs! I don't think so!
The owners of this fireplace called and told us they couldn't use the fireplace because of the soot (carbon monoxide) (poison) So we redesigned the fireplace with an air vented pan and our glass (Starfire and Ice) and now a clean burn! The flames are all above the glass and therefore no more carbon monoxide. Fireplace Shops and dealers won't tell you about this unless you ask, how would you know to ask?
Starfire and Ice on the left
Pan and ring burner on the right.
Really nice fireplace in the middle of the great room surrounded by 3 glass walls.
The fireplace below has Starfire, Ice and Copper Ruby Red.
The fireplace below has Starfire and Ice
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 and a little bit of ICE. The earth as the back yard and a lot of friends, wow!
The fireplace below has Black, Black Reflective and ICE on top
The fireplace below has Starfire and Ice Ice Ice installed with a really cool ceramic tile on the face. Nice job!
The fireplace below has Bronze, Bronze Reflective, Ice, Gold and Yellow Amber Topper. This fireplace is in Shawano, Wisconsin at the Cotton Patch Restaurant. E mail Patti
and tell here you saw her fireplace.
Now for the after pictures! This was a custom propane burner which was under all of the glass!
This is what Patti had to say:
Well, it's been about two weeks since I installed the new fireplace, and it is the talk of this sleepy little town. Because of the "Ice" on the top, it has been nicknamed the "Fire and Ice" fireplace. I just placed an order for a pound each of 1/4" Gold, Yellow Amber Topper and Clear Ice. I think it needs a smidgen more color, and since the Ice is the big feature, I decided to add a little more. I have to say, I didn't think I would like the ice, but it looks amazing!
Thank you Ed and Jimmy for all of your help and hand holding over the past few months. I will take more pictures when I add the new products.
The fireplace below is a propane burner, self installation with the 2" method, Starfire and Gold on top
Above we have the old burner with a smaller flame pattern which we will change to a double burner in our tray propane pan burner
A little bit of cleaning with a wire brush and 1200 degree paint
We filled the bottom with pea gravel and the covered it with sand
Then we installed the propane burner and filler it with pea gravel to the top of the burners
You can see the pilot light and thermo-coupler exposed
So there it is. A clean burning propane burner, 2" method, no soot, no smells, no carbon monoxide and it puts out a tremendous amount of heat. We sell the 2" method because it works and if anyone tries to tell you different, they need your money more than you do. We are the only company building propane burners for glass that don't soot or smell!
The fireplace below is in San Diego, California and the colors used were:
Cobalt Blue Topper
Steel Blue Topper
Cranberry Pink Topping
Deep Royal Topping
Solex and Solex Reflective
Azurlite and Azurlite Reflective
Blue Green and Blue Green Reflective
and a little bit of Ice Ice Ice on top
The end pictures show that the burner was too close the wall which was an easy fix by moving the burner forward.
This is where is went a little bit wrong, oops. We just had them move the burner forward and now its fine and the back wall was repainted.
The unique display of ICE is just that, cool.
You have to admit, our ICE looks like ICE! Another creative idea.
The fireplace below is a direct vent self install by Norm. The colors used were: Starfire base, Cobalt Blue Topper, Pale Cobalt Blue Topper, Ice Ice Ice, Pale Gray Topper, Gray Topper and Copper Blue Topper.
We use a piece of stainless steel in the front to contain the glass to cover the burners and keep the glass level.
The fireplace below is in Mexico where we seem to be sending more and more propane burners and glass for the new homes being built there. The fireplace below has a Black base glass with Ice Ice Ice on top of one of our propane pan burners. Which later a remote control was added by the custom that we sent to them.
The fire pit below has Azurlite, 1/2" Azurlite, Ice Ice Ice, Starfire and Platinum in the center. Lava rock was used to minimize on the use of glass to keep it in the budget.
The fireplace below is in Glendale Hills California. We installed Starfire as a base with about 1 lb of Ice Ice Ice on top. Then to finish it off we installed a brass surround with bronze frosted glass. The customer loved it! She is the CEO of Fredrick's of Hollywood! Awesome house by the way.
The fire pit below is a new product line from TC, one of our newest dealers. These come with a fibre optics feature, fire and water feature included.The glass that was use was a Clear base with Ice Ice Ice and a splash of Dark Red Orange Topper, Copper Ruby Red Topper and several Diamonds through out for a pretty nice look. We will have pricing on these as soon as we start to distribute their newer products.
The fireplace below is in Beverly Hills California.
We use a Black base glass with Clear Ice Ice Ice on top. The customer wanted to use their original burner to keep the flames localized in the center area. This fireplace goes from "Log Ugly" to very nice and contemporary in about an hour. If you really take a look at your fireplace place in the beginning it almost looks like an incinerator for long ago.
Not very nice? Nice Logs? I don't think so!
Now it's painted and ready for the glass.
A Black base glass and 5 lbs of our Ice Ice Ice.
You can't see the Ice on still pictures but what it is doing like looking into a spoon, it reflects backwards and appears to be melting. Ask for a sample and you will be amazed.
The fireplace below is a before and after and a "how to" make it low and lean. A more contemporary look. This is a self install by Rich Kamins and one very nice job!. He used a Bronze and Bronze Reflective base glass. Topper with a bit of Starfire. Ice Ice Ice and about 2 pounds of Copper Ruby Red Topper for a splash of color.
Typical nasty fireplace before us...
A few bricks and some drywall
Some sand under the burner for filler to raise the base glass.
And here you have one nice finished fireplace.
The fireplace below is a typical peninsula direct vent fireplace. A simple conversion. We used a Bronze base with Gold on top with Ice Ice Ice and Clear Diamonds and Pink Diamonds.
The fireplace below has a Starfire base with Dark Red Orange Topper, Clear Pyrite and Ice Ice Ice on top.
The fireplace below was installed by George Foote who also built his own pan, great job! We supplied the burners and glass and George supplied the talent and labor. Great job George! The colors used were:
Starfire base glass,
Gray base glass,
and our Ice Ice Ice and you be the judge!
Before the pan and glass.
Here is the stainless steel pan that George built.
Start with Starfire.
Add some Azurlite.
and the rest of the colors for one nice design from George!
The fireplace Below has a Starfire base with Ice Ice Ice on top.
The fireplace below has a Starfire base glass with Copper Ruby Red Topper on top and 2 lbs of Ice Ice Ice on top.
Here is a glimpse of what it used to look like, yuck!
You have to try to understand, we see this transformation everyday and we still don't understand the lure to fake logs, do you? Take a closer look at your fireplace, is there anything nice about it in the daylight?
The fireplace below was installed with a dual battery operated 100,000 BTU propane electronic ignition system. Each capable of 100,000 BTU's of fire. The first pictures show what we had to work with and how it progressed.
The glass that was used was Starfire, Gold and Ice Ice Ice.
If this was in your house you would say NASTY!
Burning wood and logs is just nasty and dirty! True story!
Above you can see the soot that come out of the fireplace and and leaves your house smelling so carbon monoxide fresh! YUCK!
Add a bit of lime stone.
A few pieces of copper.
Below you can see the sand bed and the ignition box we built.
Below are the two vent we installed for the air mixers inside of the ignition systems.
and here we are finished. Now isn't that much better little feller?
Modern times call for modern measures!
The fireplace below is in Santa Monica California. The fireplace is a Malm Fireplace which can be found at:
We used an 18" double stainless steel burner and a bed of Starfire topped with a few pounds of our Ice Ice Ice.
This is a very simple self installation as you will see.
The fireplace below is in Laguna Beach California. The glass that was use was Starfire. Topped with Clear Diamonds and Ice Ice Ice.
The fireplace below was assembled by Nadine in Dallas Texas (Elegant Reflections USA) Great job on the skull! The base glass is Starfire and Black base makes up the skull. She also used Clear Diamonds and Clear Crystals from our Toppers.
You can see the Diamonds and Crystals around the outer edge for accents.
The fire table below was built for Dr. Ramsey Burton in Kentucky. We are going to show you from beginning in the shop to the finished product that Ramsey envisioned for his patio. Ramsey did a wonderful job in planing, building and execution of this project. The glass he used was a Starfire base with Ice Ice Ice on top. Here we go:
This was the lay out for the table to come!
these were the pictures we sent Ramsey after assembly and testing of the fire bowl, water pumps and fibre optics. The glass we tested with usually is our Multi Mix. It tends to show off many colors and always looks great.
Above you can see the gas line and electrical
Access panel below.
Below the bowl was fitted.
Don't ever forget to install a trimming valve!
There are 6 colors on Ramsey's color wheel in the fibre optics.
Above and below you can see the cover Ramsey have made to protect the fire table when not in use.
Great job Ramsey!
The fire pit below belongs to Chad Haupert. He used an Azurlite base with Azurlite Reflective on top. Then he created a star in the center using Bronze Rust Copper with and outline of Ice Ice Ice. We didn't get pictures of the complete pit nor of it burning. But it looks great!
The fire pit below is going to be installed in Sacramento on 11 14 09 for the Yard Crashers/ DIY/ HGTV show. After it is and has been installed we will post pictures on the Yard Crashers page. In the mean time here is the how to and why. We can build any size, shape, design feature you desire. We build to your imagination.
Below is the catch basin to hold the water for the feature
Above you see the auto fill?
Below the water pump is now install below.
Below the top pan is in place for testing with the fire and water bowls in place
Below the stainless steel ring is installed.
Below the glass (Bronze base glass) has been installed and the lights turned on.
Below you can see the pump has been turned on.
and now the fire.
We placed a card board template to replicate the table top to conceal the lights as well.
Now we add color to the water!
Here is the feature exposed with the blue water. You can change the water to any color you like.
This feature is only 6 1/2" tall. You can mount this under the table top and keep it only an inch or so above the surface of the table top.
So let's change it to red water and add Starfire base glass.
Remember, we build to your imagination!
The finished pictures will be posted on the Yard Crashers page when this project is installed after 11 14 09!
"CLICK HERE to see the "Yard Crashers" Sacramento show!" with this feature installed.
The fire water feature below was built by Don Whittaker and the glass that was used was:
Bronze base, Bronze Reflective, Garnet Topper, Ice Ice Ice and Cobalt Blue Opal Topping.
Here we go from the beginning:
The fireplace below is typical wood burning fireplace which we see every day. Once uncovered it looks like an incinerator. They are pretty nasty looking with out the fire burning. We like to show the before and after so you know what you really have.
Nice! Very Nice!
We had Starfire base glass installed with Ice Ice Ice on top.
The fireplace below has
a StarfireStarfire base with:
Orange R140 Topper,
Ice Ice Ice,
Copper Blue and Steel Blue toppers.
The Orange R140 Topper is actually one of our chameleons, it turns to bright red when it gets hot and then changes back!
Our Copper Blue Topper is a chameleon as well. It turns to green and changes back to blue when cooled!
The fireplace below has Azurlite base glass, Ice Ice Ice and Sky Blue Diamonds for accents.
The fireplace below is from Eliabeth Bawden, very nice finish! The colors that were used are:
Black base glass,
Ice Ice Ice,
Multi Color Cubes
Very nice splash of color!
This next fireplace was done with lack of knowledge! First they installed a 18" single burner and some real interesting choices of glass. What they did do correct is have a 3" sand bed under their yuk glass. The first issue we repaired was the stub out on the left side of the fireplace floor. All we did was install a 90 degree elbow and connect a 1/2" flex line to the new double 24" burner. They had left the flex pointing in the air and then reduced it to a 3/8" line and to top that off added they very sad single 18" burner. We repainted their futile attempt (of painting) with dark metallic brown, added 10 lbs of sand and poured 75 lbs of Starfire base glass over the new burner and sand filler. We will explain as we move forward:
Below you can see the black marks under the paint.
Below you can see the flex line that was installed was left above the surface. Now if we tried that I think our customers would take us out and string us up, what do you think? To top it off this customer was an attorney! Completely happy with what we did.
Here is the new paint on the back walls.
Now we added the Starfire base glass. One thing we have been doing a little bit different is to bring the glass out from the front of the fireplace. We let the glass come out of the fireplace from 3 to 6 inches to make it look even more grand. What do you think?
Here is a the almost finished product of what we do! We left several colors with the customer to add. We will post pictures when they arrive.
Below are the finished pictures of what else was added:
Ice Ice Ice,
Red R Topper,
Roma Red Topper
I think it turned out very colorful! Check it out!
The fireplace pictures below is a before and after fireplace.
The glass that was installed is:
Galaxy Green base glass,
Ice Ice Ice,
Pale Cobalt Blue Topper,
Lime Green Topper
You be the judge, a very nice mix of colors. Many times better than the BEFORE!
Just the Cobalt Blue Topper is installed above and below.
The fireplace pictures below show the before and after from Bob Kobus. The glass that was used is:
Starfire base glass and Ice Ice Ice, Very nice, contemporary and simple!
Let's go from start to finish:
Nice Logs! NOT!
Bob used an aluminum brick metalized panel.
Then they did their grind pattern.
And here you have it finished!
Yes the logs will be leaving very soon!
Starfire and Ice.
Much better, don't you think?
The fireplace pictures below will show how simple and easy it actually is to install.
Here are a few comments from J.D.
Subject: More proof of how easy it is to do with Moderustic providing the materials!
We are so happy with our fireglass fireplaces (we have 3!). It has literally changed our lives in that we can use our fireplaces anytime we want with no worry about
cleaning ashes later on. Even better, the look is so superior to fake logs. All of our friends have been wowed by the look. We always send them your way.

Here we go:
Above you can see how nice it WAS! YUK!
Below they painted, we always recommend painting the lines first and then painting each brick separately. Using this technique you can eliminate spots.
Install the burner. We usually recommend curling the flex line from underneath, but this works as well if your flex line is long enough. The reason for the flex line: it allows you to move the burner forward to prevent the flames from hitting the back wall.
Below the lava has been poured and test the flame pattern.
Pour the glass from the front going to the back. You can use a cup or pour from the bucket.
Turn it on and your done!
The glass that was used is:
1 lb of Gold,
Ice Ice Ice for one simple but nice fireplace!
