These next photos come to us care of Guy Philemon. We helped him convert his wood-burning fire pit to safely burn fireglass with propane gas. Through emails and phone conversations we were able to succefully complete the conversion process remotely.
Guy purchased a 12" double stainless steel propane burner ring
and some Starfire
Here's what Guy had to say, "I really appreciate your website and all the things you created."
The table below is in Chicago
The fireplace below started out a little bland and with a little metal work, nice.
Starfire and red topping.
The fire pit below has clear, starfire, amber topping, amber topper and dark red orange topper.
The fireplace below has an aluminum surround and starfire in Palm Springs.
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 taked without the flame on and when we return we will have pictures of the fire pit lite up
The fire pit below has clear with our very own ICE!
The fireplace below was hand made by one very creative customer, great job! It has a starfire base and clear pyrite added to the surface for a little sparkle.
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)1
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 pictures below are of a 2" install with starfire and black paint and this install took only 30 minutes.
Be sure to clean the fireplace before painting.
install the burner and test the flame pattern.
test the flame on high and low to insure the flame goes straight up and does not hit the walls.
after masking and painting we turned the flame on low to heat the paint to dry it quicker.
Turn the light down low to see the flame pattern as you will have the light donw low with your evening fire. The pipe burners can be adjusted to the desired effect.
Above the lava rock goes in and then we test the flame pattern once again.
Above the sand goes over the lava rock and we once again test the flame pattern.
Pour the glass on and your done.
We have been told by dozens of customers that you will need an installation by a tech. As you can see how easy this actually is, they just want your money more than you do. Again this was a 30 minute install.
The 2 pictures below have bronze, bronze reflective, black, black reflective and pale cobalt blue topper.
The fire pit above and below have gray, gray reflective, Ice and red topper.

Has anyone ever said "Nice Logs"? I don't think so. We are going to show you how to transform your direct vent fireplace into a real attractive fireplace.
The key is not to change teh amount of gas going into the fireplace, so don't change teh regulator.
The thermo coupler (heat detector) will be raised to the surface to insure it will still work.
Drop in a new burner or use the one that was installed with your fireplace and your done.

The 4 pictures below are all clear glass
The 6 pictures below show a self install with all glass using the original burner which didn't have a bad flame pattern. 1/8" clear was used as a base and then starfire was added to the surface saving money and it did look great. It's a simple as that.

The tables below were made for the Marriott in Boise Idaho
Marriott Hotel Boise Idaho
This is a proto 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 propane conversion was here in Southern California. Crista brought the bowl and we did the rest.
Crista brought the top pan and lid and we installed a propane burner We installed one of our FPPK kits (fire pit propane kit)
