This unique fire pit / bench pictures come to us from Graham Thiel of Canyon Construction. It's a natural gas feed with a stainless steel 38" linear burner, an Aluminum pan and Bronze Rust Copper fireglass.
The fire waterfalls was a large project featuring 14 waterfalls! We've been working with new ways of altering fire and we have found how to burn hydrogen! For now you will see the flame change to a lighter more orange flame when the hydrogen hits the fire. We have found how to make fire tornadoes in the process, which makes for a spectacular flame effect! Now for the pictures. We also installed a complete mister system all around the water fall and fire pits to help with the hydrogen.
Do you see the face the water fall makes with the fire on? We call it a Pirate!
You can see the fire changing in the pictures above and below.
There were 2=42" stainless steel pans made and filled with 3 stainless steel burners in each pan. The water runs through the pans helping with the hydrogen. The colors used was a Bronze base and Bronze Reflective with Gold on top.
The fire pit below is in Glendale, Arizona at the Renaissance Hotel. We installed an electronic ignition with a 30" stainless steel ring. The glass use was a Clear base with Starfire on top and Topped with 42 lbs of Apricot Topper. These pictures were taken with the edges still exposed which were covered by a layer of Starfire.
This next fire pit was built by Tim and Sarah, they simply built this with stacker stones and a bit of ingenuity. The used a crushed lava base with Black Base glass topped with Black Reflective base glass. Then they used a Light Amber Topping to create the Fleur De Lis. This was done with a propane valve that we supplied. They used a wood burning fire bowl for the pit. The tank was accessible from the back of the fire pit. Add the base crushed lava. Note we do not use the 3/4" size? Way to large for the glass as it will fall through. You can use the larger lava and then over it with the crushed lava to save some cash!
Below if you notice the Pilot Light and Thermo Couple just inside of the ring? This is a must if using propane, for safety.
Steve Hinojos (S.B. County Sheriff) built two fire pits using propane. One of which was a Wine Barrel Fire Pit
and the other a traditional (oopsies on this one!). We will explain as we move on. We supplied the know how and all of the parts to make his Wine Barrel Fire Pit
a success! great job Steve!
We also supplied Steve with the all of the propane parts to make his fire table work properly as well. It's when we got his pictures that we noticed the ROCKS! You can't burn ROCKS, they EXPLODE! This you can see in the Famous "How Not To Do It"
page. Initially he had no problems but once they took on moisture, sure enough he was back for some safe and sound glass!
All in all, great job Steve!
Round Outdoor Patio Fire Pit
These fire pit pictures come to us from Etiwanda CA. Our customer had Clear base fireglass and one really cool flame effect from using our black magic sand!
The pictures below are of the fire pit on the roof top of the Marriott in downtown San Diego in the Gas Lamp District on the 24th floor, very cool view if your ever there. The 2 half round 24" x 48" stainless steel rings were made custom for this fire pit. The glass that was used was a 50/50 mix of Starfire and Black. Very nice effect along with the view.
The fire pit below will show you how not to do it (bad plumbing) and how easy it is to install a battery operated remote control. The glass used was Ford Blue
and we installed 2 44" stainless steel "H" burners.
In the pictures on the top right, do you see the plumbing sticking out of the pit? Well this was fixed, but not by the plumber that tried to install it. We cut a little bit of concrete and placed the valve in properly. Above you will see a very poor attempt of a gas burner and valve. O'KELLS FIREPLACE SHOP!
The picture above has our twin remotes inside the box protected from the weather.
We covered the larger lava rock with our crushed lava rock
to pour a 1 1/2" Ford Blue base
to cover the lava and burners. Unless you plan to cover your outdoor fire pit we recommend to use all stainless steel burners and parts to avoid rusting.
Once the glass covers the box, it just looks nice. To replace the batteries, move the glass on the top and the rest is simple.
The fire pit above is at the Torrance Marriott in California.
The fire pit below has a Starfire base with Ice on top. This is a concrete molded fire pit at the same home as above in Pasadena, California. Later there was 30 lbs of Red added and maybe we can get more pictures.
The fire pit below has Azurlite, Azurlite Reflective, Ford Blue and Ford Blue Reflective installed.
The fire pit below has Azurlite
as a base and Ice
on top making the letter Y
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!
Great job and very creative.
We used Bronze glass
and stainless steel burners in this fire pit on the roof top. Great design and view.
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
in the Multi Mix
Bronze on the left and Gray on the right below.
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" Starfire and 1/2" Starfire.
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!
Here is a real good example of how to convert that old outdoor brick fire pit into a, modern yet rustic, fire and glass pit.
Here is an outdoor firepit designed with mosiac tiles using Black and Gray fire glass.
The fire pit below has a half round 4 piece stainless steel ring custom made to fit the shape of the fire pit.
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 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.
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.
Our propane burners were set to 100,000 btu's each for maximum heat. The glass that we used was Bronze Rust Copper.

The next several pictures show you a flip top box design for a fire pit control panel. It is constructed from stainless steel or could be made from aluminum. The trimming valves are for adjusting the flame are inside along with an electronic key to activate the
electronic ignition. These were made for an apartment complex and only the management had control of the electronic ignition. Here are the pictures.
These two separate boxes were made to fit each specific fire pit.
The next 27 pictures are of the Dominic Fire Water Feature finished and ready for crating/ shipping.
Here we go: The pictures explain themselves.
Here is the Design that was sent to us before we started working on it. We will walk you through the process as explained to us by the client. Now for the construction and pictures...
The following photos were sent to us by our client. A step by step demonstrating how he built his custom fire pit. The metal cut-out comes later. But please follow along as he explains...
I 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. I then had my local granite company cut a ¾” thick 52” diameter circle with a 28” opening in the center to accommodate the pan.
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.
Place base in location, propane line already in place as well as 110v electric with X10 remote socket for LED lights.Install plywood / granite / LED lights onto table base and screw into Tee NutsInstall Pan on top of granite leaving access into the table to complete connections.Disconnect Pilot assembly from AF-4000 MOD and run gas line, ignitor and sensor through hole in pan inside the table
Reconnect Pilot assembly back to AF-4000 MOD ( Be sure to use the correct connections or things will not work
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.
Attach the pilot tube to the AFVK-SP-MH/L module.
Install the burner inside the pan and attach the Gas Outlet connection to the burner.
Attach the Gas Inlet connection to the gas supply line which has a cutoff on it.
Test the remote lighting and check all fittings with soapy water for leaks.
Once everything checked out, install the pan inside the opening.
Install a layer of lava rock under the double burner to lift if from the bottom about 1”
Install ¼” Starfire Glassel on top of lava and covering the burner while leaving the pilot assembly exposed to be able to function.
Tested the remote again to verify operation.
