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 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

Here is our first project in our metal shop. A portable fire pit for propane or natural gas. These will be available in unfinished (as shown) just add your stone, plaster, marble, granite, brushed stainless steel or? The fire pit shown is a natural gas with Multi Mix glass
(about 30 to 40 colors from our mixing counter. We will offer any size as a custom fire pit for natural gas or propane. Our custom fire pits are single wall construction with a solid bottom drop in pan.
The fire pit/ table is at the Roxbury Hotel and we will show you the progress here from beginning to end. This was a propane installation with our FPPK burner. The colors used were:
Above shows the framing and the gas line coming in.
Below shows the pipe coming out of the floor and the thermo-coupler on the glass next to the igniter
Roxbury Hotel, a cool fire pit!
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! www.IvyHotel.com
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.
The fire bowl below is one of our newest products/ projects. The first one went to Ramsey Burton in Kentucky of which after he installs it is his ten foot granite table we will show you pictures of his project. This is a 48" spun aluminum bowl with a 24" center bowl with a water feature with fibre optics. The outer bowl has a stainless steel ring for a full surround fire feature. So here are the first proto-type pictures from the shop.
These pictures show what happens when it gets darker as the fire is attracted to the water. Opposites attract, maybe this is why most of us are still together. The question is" Who is the FIRE?"
No we add the fibre optics in the center bowl.
The glass we used was our Multi Mix
. At least 80 colors are showing.
You can change the water head for a different effect.
We are going to be showing this for the first time in Palm Springs on December 06 2007 on Thursday evening at the Village Fest. This is just a base you would build your table around and we can add any feature or effect you would like. We will be adding several features to this fire/ water feature in the next few weeks. We will be posting pictures from the Village Fest after the first showing. If you dream it, we will build it.
The fire pit below is a 36" round stainless steel pan with a 24" stainless steel ring. The glass is Bronze Rust Copper
. This pan can easily be adapted for propane as well.
We used Bronze glass
and stainless steel burners in this fire pit on the roof top. Great design and view.
The table below was built for Jim Shaw in Riverside California. The stainless steel tray with stainless steel burners was build to Jim's specs. We used Bronze glass
, Bronze Reflective glass
and Pink Diamonds
.This was a natural gas burner and could be easily converted to propane.
The fire table below is a propane model and is a very easy conversion. Just call and we will convert it for you and or show you how. The glass used was a layer of black lava under the base of Gray glass, Black Luster Topper with Copper Ruby Red Topper. This fire table belongs to Eric Bergman in Palm Springs and he loves it.
The fire pit below is a failed attempt of a propane conversion without our help in the beginning. You can't just burn propane! If you try this, this is what it will look like. You need to calibrate the amount of air to propane or it will back fire, burn black or explode! We recommend a thermo coupler, air mixer/ venturi along with several other important factors. We won't tell you who tried this but we will tell you we did fix the issue and now the customer is very happy. We did use Azurlite with Azurlite Reflective.
Below we have the fire pit that we installed for Reba! In Nashville Tennessee.
Here is her stainless steel fire pit pan as we manufactured it for propane with electronic ignition.
Below is a 36" aluminum pan burner for propane with a 3" outside lip. These can be made to fit any fire pit, fire table of fire fit for natural gas or propane. We can build anything! This pan has a thermo-coupler for safety and air mixer built in to eliminate soot.
The fire pits below are located in Laguna Beach California at the Cliff Restaurant
5775 South Coast Highway Laguna Beach 92651
We used a Clear base with Azurlite on top with Azurlite Reflective. Then we added Emerald Green Topper and Copper Blue Topper which turns green when it gets hot. Then it turns back. Because the chrome is seen when its cold and the copper changes the color to green when it get 500 degrees.
The fire pit below has an Azurlite base
with Azurlite Reflective
on top. Then topped with Pale Lime Green Topper
and Aquamarine Topper
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 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 table/ fire pit below is in Texas and was designed with our glass in mind to be installed and it has a Black base
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 collection of Fire Tables below are from D Cook, one of our dealers and a manufacture of some really nice high end fire tables and planter boxes in any and all metals. Tell us what you think!
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 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:
36" triple stainless steel burner ring
We will show you 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
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!
We only did the fire pit, not the view. That came with the home. But one very impressive view!
As you have looked at all of our pictures we would like you to know we use Crystals
as our Toppers
. 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.
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:
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:
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 big decision, more colors and which ones?
Metal Logos! We can create any logo in any size or design! Place your colors in our awesome frames and your set! You can use any of our Toppings to accent the interior or exterior of your Logo or Name! Put this in your fireplace or fire pit with FireGlass in any color!
The first one of many we have created we will soon enough have pictures following with it installed burning.
Here is the first one:
The customer chose one of our Lipstick Reds for a center accent.
The overall size of this "KU" was 6" wide x 9" tall.
Below we used a Cobalt Blue Topping with a Starfire base glass all around.
Texas Long Horn Fire Pit LOGO!
Ed, Rebecca, Morgan and crew at Moderustic:
Finally completed my project for the Texas Longhorn Alum in my RV Park. Actual time was only approx 80 hours but did not work on it full time.
Had my local welding fabricator build the base out of ¼” square tube for the circles and 1” square tube for the legs and attached some decorative feet on it. Also attached some L brackets at the top to install the granite top with.
Fabricator also built a 28” diameter by 4” deep pan out of 16ga steel. Later we decided to add a ¾” lip around the top edge.
We drilled holes in it to install some retractable handles for easier installation / maintenance. Drilled holes for the pilot assemble to pass through the pan and for the burner assembly to attach.
We had another 28.5” diameter 16ga steel circle cut out to create a lid for the pan to prevent rain/debris from disturbing the Glassel bed.
Used the longhorn cookie cutter cut out to make a 16ga steel flat longhorn cutout to affix atop of the lid
Had the pan and lid sandblasted and powder coated black to match the base. Had the longhorn powder coated candy copper along with a handle to match.
Cutout a ¾” plywood base to use to attach the granite to. Installed Tee Nuts into the plywood so that we could screw the plywood base onto the base of the table later.
Purchased and installed some 110v LED low profile puck lights and affixed to the underside of the plywood to create indirect lighting of the table, routed channels for the cabling to follow and used silicone to keep in place
Had my local granite company cut a ¾” thick 52” diameter circle with a 28” opening in the center to accommodate the pan.
Attached the granite to the plywood base using silicone.
Installed Cement Board onto the inside of the table base as a bed for the stone tiles.
Installed the Lowes Special Order Solistone 12” x 12” Stone Tiles around the table.
Created a bracket inside the table base to hang the AFVK-SP-MH/L and extended the wiring on the battery box to allow for installation underneath the granite top outside the table base to be able to change batteries later.
All the parts are complete so time for the final install
1. Place base in location, propane line already in place as well as 110v electric with X10 remote socket for LED lights.
2. Install plywood / granite / LED lights onto table base and screw into Tee Nuts
3. Install Pan on top of granite leaving access into the table to complete connections.
a. Disconnect Pilot assembly from AF-4000 MOD and run gas line, ignitor and sensor through hole in pan inside the table
b. Reconnect Pilot assembly back to AF-4000 MOD ( Be sure to use the correct connections or things will not work J )
c. Attach the battery pack to the underside of the granite base in the routed channel to allow the wiring to move in / out for ease of use.
d. Attach the pilot tube to the AFVK-SP-MH/L module.
e. Install the burner inside the pan and attach the Gas Outlet connection to the burner.
f. Attach the Gas Inlet connection to the gas supply line which has a cutoff on it.
g. Test the remote lighting and check all fittings with soapy water for leaks.
4. Once everything checked out, install the pan inside the opening.
5. Install a layer of lava rock under the double burner to lift if from the bottom about 1”
6. Install ¼” Starfire Glassel on top of lava and covering the burner while leaving the pilot assembly exposed to be able to function.
7. Tested the remote again to verify operation
8. Install the Longhorn cookie cutter and fill with Pimento Red Glassel.
9. Install cover

and now for the construction and pictures...
The next fire pits were designed and built for the Marriott (Islandia previously) in Mission Bay California.
We started with several cardboard mock up tables for the hotel to approve.
We will explain as we move forward.
The hotel decided on the granite and we cut the granite with water jet and polished the edges.
These were installed on the private patios of the hotel suites.
Valves and location are important as well.
They ended up using a thermo couple and pilot light system with a battery operated igniter.
