The fire pits shown are in the finishing stages and we should get our glass pictures soon.
1:As you can see there is a solid bottom and a drain.
2: The lava rock goes just below the fire ring and then the crushed lava rock and a thin layer of sand on top of that. Then you pour the glass and your done!
Fire Tables in Temecula, California.
The beginning of a pretty cool man made fire pit
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 pit below has Gray and Gray Reflective
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
If you have been told to use more glass than 1" or 1 1/2" of glass over the crushed lava rock, then someone was trying to line their pockets with your money.
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.

Fire Water feature in the lobby/ food court
This fire pit featured Starfire surrounded by water. We only did the glass and the burners were by another company.
Three Public Art Projects Selected for Boise Airport
BoiseCity Council has approved the selected artists to design and build an art glass fireplace with Aquatic Glassel, a cast and fused glass wall feature, and a fabric mural for the new buildings of the Boise Airport. Art projects will complement the modern, curvilinear architecture inspired by Idahos natural resources.
Project: Fireplace/Water Feature Artists: Lawrence Ko and Ray Ahlgren from Portland, Oregon and Moderustic of Rancho Cucamonga, California
Budget: $155,000 Site: Food Court in New Terminal Completion: September 2004
Sponsored by: Boises Percent-for-Art, Aviation and Public Transportation Department
A fireplace made of glass (Aquatic Glassel) with a surrounding water basin feature inspired by the stepped landforms of the Boise Riverbanks and nearby reservoir will act as a beacon of light within the new food court area. Sited below a skylight, the fireplace will be a focal point and gathering space for travelers.
The table below was and has been designed for the Marriott Hotels. This is a proto type which will be wrapped in wire and then coated in a special mix of concrete for use with fire. The table will have a brushed metal edge with lighting on the under side which will be activated just by touch (switchless). The table measures 60" wide, 24" tall and a base of 36". There will be a base door to access all utilities, gas, electric and water.
This table will have a water feature, fire feature and electronics. After installation we will post pictures of the finished product.The first tables are going to Idaho in Boise and other cities in Boise.
