The fireplace below has Clear, Gray, Black, Clear Pyrite and Topped with 1/2" Starfire.
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 fireplace below has a 3" layer of crushed lava, 1/4" Clear Base Glass, 1/2" Starfire Base Glass, 3/4" Starfire Base Glass for the chunky look and a flush surround to finish it off. A very impressive and modern house and fireplace. From beginning to end, here we go.
We also floated the walls to level the fireplace and get it ready for the surround.
A little bit of granite on the floor
If you notice to the right there is no valve to turn it on? The plumber from a few years ago has it to the right about 5 feet, DUMMY! Lets fill the fireplace with gas before we get there and see what happens! Don't hire that plumber.
We are now going to do an extended 3/4" glass radius counter in the kitchen in front of the stove for a glass counter top.
We also bent all of the kitchen handles to contour the cabinets.
Now you can see the fireplace valve to the right.
We flush fit a surround to the wall for a final finish. This was a satin black aluminum frame with 2" of glass installed
We are capable of any size project from design to a full installation (depending on our current work load). There is nothing we can't do as we are the the first and foremost authority in our field. We never say NO! We do only what the other companies can only dream about!
The fire pit below is a new product line from TC, one of our newest dealers. These come with a fibre optics feature, fire and water feature included.The glass that was use was a Clear base with Ice Ice Ice and a splash of Dark Red Orange Topper, Copper Ruby Red Topper and several Diamonds through out for a pretty nice look. We will have pricing on these as soon as we start to distribute their newer products.
The fire pit below has a Clear base with Ford Blue on top with Blue Green Reflective on the surface
The fireplace below has a steel pan underneath to conceal the 12 volt remote control. We used a Clear base glass and topped it with a Starfire base glass and then added Amber Diamonds on the surface.
You can see the front plate that was painted to match which is removable if and when necessary to change the batteries. The legs were 4 1/2" and the pan was 2" tall. The removable front metal curtain was 6 1/2" tall.
The fire pit below has a Clear Base Glass with Starfire Base Glass and 1/2" Starfire Base Glass, Yellow Amber Topper. Cobalt Blue Topper and Emerald Green Topper and a little bit of ICE ICE ICE Topper. The earth as the back yard and a lot of friends, wow!
The fire pit below is located in San Diego, Gable Point Loma. There were 2 electronic ignitions installed and a false bottom was installed. We filled the base with Clear base glass and 1/2" Clear base glass.The lines were installed from the back.
Below are the electronic ignitions.
Framing/ metal studs were installed and two layers of durock was then installed to support the glass.
The stove below had a set of logs installed, yuk! We used the original burner and just raised the thermo coupler to the surface of the glass. The glass will get to about 700 to 750 degrees in about an hour burning at 80,000 btu's. We used a Clear base glass, Lagoon topper and a few Clear Diamonds and Pink Diamonds.
Much nicer than LOGS! No Really!
The fireplace below is a self installation by Thom Toben of Studio T2 Designs in Kansas. & colors were installed and they are;
Clear base with Starfire base mixed together over
Medium Amber Topping
Bronze Rust Copper base glass
Black Luster Topper
Yellow Amber Topper and
Turquoise Blue Topper
You be the judge, we think it looks great!
Below the burner is installed with the flex line under the burner
Now the lava goes in and the burner is brought up to the surface
Test the burner to insure the flame don't hit the back wall.
The Clear and Starfire base glass was poured on top of the lava.
Then Thom placed all of the other selected to match the room.
The next fire pit was build/ constructed by Rose Harms in Wyoming. Long story behind this one with what the plumbers were telling her and what actually happened. We will explain as we go.
Above and below you can see we had her install a gas line with a quick disconnect hose.
Here is what Rose had to say:
Hi Ed and Claudia,
Wanted to be sure I got the photos to you of our completed fire pit.
Here are the steps we went through:
Bought the brick/blocks (no lip on the stones) from Lowe's, put in circle, 3 rows high.
Bought the iron fire pit at Lowe's and placed on and inside fire pit. -note -it is iron, so I sprayed it with HIGH HEAT paint, in Copper. Wow!
got plumber to run natural gas from deck above (outlet for BBQ) and under the deck, ran down the deck post and he put in a Shut Off valve there.
He ran a precise hole through the bottom off the fire pit to hold pipe for gas to the double ring burner (from Moderustic of course) and it is stainless
steel (no rust). At the bottom of the deck post is a flexible hose which goes over to the fire pit. It CAN be disconnected or even roll up and
shove inside fire pit (after it is cooled).
Note: you do need to chop off a piece of the block, or else just pull one out when you are using the
fire pit. (Kind of like Jenga -just pull out the stone, the others support the fire pit) Unless you can successfully saw off a piece of the stone.
Lit the burner to be sure it works well. It did.
We put in the 1" lava rock in the bottom of copper fire pit and then filled in the spaces with 1/4" lava rock. Should have used More! When we went to
cover the burner we were short on the fireglass. So we ordered more. Still looks beautiful.
Got rest of glass and made circles with the glass and it is beautiful. There are photos of it burning last night!! Lots of warmth on a typical
cool Wyoming evening.
Brick: $200, Fire Pit $79 on sale, double ring SS burner $126, glass -about $250, gas line -don't know yet but guessing $200. Maybe $750-800 total.
And -the way it is made, we could actually dismantle and move it. No mortar in stones. We are very happy with our fire pit and thanks to Ed and the gals
at Moderustic, we were able to make the right choice for glass and burner. Thanks Ed, Rebecca and Claudia. Very knowledgeable and helpful. Could not have managed
this without your guidance. We love being DYI-ers but directions are needed!! We appreciate all your help.
Rose and Doug Harms, Cheyenne Wyoming
Mind that the customers stacked their own bricks!
The glass that was used:
Sky Blue base glass,
Ford Blue base glass,
Ford Blue Reflective base glass,
and the rest is history!
This was originally going to be propane but if you have natural gas, then use it if you can. It will cost less in the long run.
The fire pit below was built and designed by Brett Parks in Indiana. Brett came to us to help hm create his water fire feature for his back yard and be able to winterize it during their frigid winters. The glass he used was a:
Clear base glass,
E.D Scarlett Diamonds,
E.D. Clear Diamonds.
We then built a custom shape stainless steel burner to fit his idea. We will explain as we go.
Here is his original concept drawing:
Below is his layout with pavers, electrical and gas line coming up.
6" deep water tank.
Stack a few more pavers.
Let's test it!
A custom size and configuration ring was fabricated.
Now your done!
The fireplace below has a Clear base with:
1/2" Clear base glass,
V Blue and Chunky base glass,
Blue Green base glass,
Azurlite base glass
Blue Pyrite base glass on top.
The next fire pit was created by Mike. He used a metal flower pot/ planting tub and just connected it to his gas line. He installed
Clear base glass and Gold on top.
You can see the logs just outside of the pan on the left, yuk! I personally would of installed a ring burner, but that is just me!
But you have to admit, it is a good idea!
The fireplace below is in San Diego, California and the colors used were:
The end pictures show that the burner was too close the wall which was an easy fix by moving the burner forward.
This is where is went a little bit wrong, oops. We just had them move the burner forward and now its fine and the back wall was repainted.
