Reminiscent of the carefree days on a sunny sandy beach, this shell and starfish design takes you back to warm summer days and nights. This original design is made to order in the heartland of America. They are fabricated from heavy duty ¼ " thick mild carbon steel and are the most durable steel fire pit made. The inner bowl has a high temperature resistant coating applied and comes with a 1 ½" diameter rain drain which can be used to allow gas hoses access if you wish to conver this fire pit into a gas burning version. The outer iron oxide patina is maintenance free and the fire pit can be left outside in all weather conditions. Over time and use, the patina surface will mature and darken a few shades and then remain permanent forever. Each unique fire pit creation is individually numbered by the artist and attached to the base on a brass plaque.
These fire pits are safe on wood or composite decking (TRAX) if they rest on a one and one half inch thick (or thicker) stone base that should be approximately three feet square. You may also use a Deck Protect pad as well for protection. Artisan crafted fire screens with a wood loading hatch are available for most models. All designs are easily adapted to propane or natural gas equipment.
