The fire pit below has Starfire and Azurlite in the center and topped with more Starfire. This fire pit has a 6" band of white rock all around the edge. This way uses less glass and costs less.

The fireplace below started out a little bland and with a little metal work, nice.

The fireplace below is a before and after and a "how to" make it low and lean. A more contemporary look. This is a self install by Rich Kamins and one very nice job!. He used a Bronze Base Glass and Bronze Reflective Base Glass Topped with a bit of Starfire Base Glass. Ice Ice Ice Topper and about 2 pounds of Copper Ruby Red Topper for a splash of color.
Typical nasty fireplace before Moderustic!
A few bricks and some drywall
Some sand under the burner for filler to raise the base glass.
And here you have one nice finished fireplace.
The fireplace below has an aluminum surround and Starfire in Palm Springs.
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.

Above and below are a typical of what most fireplaces look like (yuk)!
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 fireplace below has a larger surround and Starfire installed. Please note the this surround is the metal shell only without the inner frosted glass.
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 WHEN WE GET A CHANCE.
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 fireplace below has a base of Starfire and topped with Dark Red Orange
The 6 fireplace pictures below have Starfire, Amber and a surround. This is in Texas and is a customer install. Very nice Rodney.
The cool kitchen fireplace below has Starfire and looks really nice in the kitchen. The burner was too close to the back wall and sooted the wall up. Be sure to not let the flames hit the walls as this will cause soot.
The fire pit / fireplace below has a Starfire base with Red and Red Orange on top. It is a low flame which produces this blue flame effect.
The fireplace below has Starfire and a clean simple look
The fireplace below was assembled by Nadine in Dallas Texas (Elegant Reflections USA) Great job on the skull! The base glass is Starfire and Black base makes up the skull. She also used Clear Diamonds and Clear Crystals from our Toppers.
You can see the Diamonds and Crystals around the outer edge for accents.
The fire pit below was purchased locally and then we converted it to burn propane without soot! The colors used were:
Here is what is looked like when he started. These manufactures have no imagination!
This only cost about $100.00, complete!
The fireplace below has Starfire Base Glass, Rhubarb Topper, Gold Base Glass, 3/4" Starfire Base Glass and Green Pyrite Base Glass.
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 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!
Below is a collection we took pictures for our customer to decide on which base to use under the Amber Diamonds.
Amber Diamonds alone
Amber Diamonds on Black Base Glass
Amber Diamonds on Starfire Base Glass
Amber Diamonds on New Yellow Base Glass
Amber Diamonds on Bronze Base Glass
The same product can be displayed thousands of ways. What do you want to see? Our Diamonds are made with a convex base so when you look at the Diamonds in the fire they seem to be melting on the inside, like looking into a spoon. We cause it to reflect backwards. Visit out "Diamonds Page" to see many more colors!
The fire pit below is going to be installed in Sacramento on 11 14 09 for the Yard Crashers/ DIY/ HGTV show. After it is and has been installed we will post pictures on the Yard Crashers page. In the mean time here is the how to and why. We can build any size, shape, design feature you desire. We build to your imagination.
Below is the catch basin to hold the water for the feature
Above you see the auto fill?
Below the water pump is now install below.
Below the top pan is in place for testing with the fire and water bowls in place
Below the stainless steel ring is installed.
Below the glass (Bronze Base Glass) has been installed and the lights turned on.
Below you can see the pump has been turned on.
and now the fire.
We placed a card board template to replicate the table top to conceal the lights as well.
Now we add color to the water!
Here is the feature exposed with the blue water. You can change the water to any color you like.
This feature is only 6 1/2" tall. You can mount this under the table top and keep it only an inch or so above the surface of the table top.
So let's change it to red water and add Starfire Base Glass.
Remember, we build to your imagination!
The finished pictures will be posted on the Yard Crashers page when this project is installed after 11 14 09!
