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 pictures below are of a self install with:
1/4" and 1/2" Bronze, 1/4" and 1/2" Starfire
Red Topping and about 1 lb of Scarlet Red Topper.
The pictures below are of:
Bronze, Dark Red Orange Topper, Gold, Amber Topping, Scarlet Red and Diamonds. The back of the fireplace was done with Ceramic tiles.Very nice and in Palm Springs.
The fireplace below has:
A Clear base with Pale Lime Green Topper, Red Toppings, Yellow Amber Toppers and Toppings, Copper Ruby Red Topper, and a hint of Starfire to lighten the color up.
This is how easy it is to install. This is all glass and if you need to build it up a little or a lot then use a filler to save money
The fireplace below has a Starfire base with Red and Red Orange Toppings, Scarlett Toppers, Copper Ruby Red Toppers. As you can see the fireplace was 5" deep and 54" wide and yes we did fill it with crushed lava rock.
The fireplace below was on the outside wall of the fireplace above. We also had a Starfire base with Red and Red Orange Toppings, Scarlett Toppers, Copper Ruby Red Toppers. This fireplace was filled 4" to save on the cost of the base glass. If anyone ever tries to tell you different, well tell them *#@!+$% their wrong! This fireplace was also 54" across the front as well.
The fire pit below has a Starfire base with Ice on top. This is a concrete molded fire pit at the same home as above in Pasadena, California. Later there was 30 lbs of Red added and maybe we can get more pictures.
The fire table below is a propane model and is a very easy conversion. Just call and we will convert it for you and or show you how. The glass used was a layer of black lava under the base of Grey glass, Black Luster Topper with Copper Ruby Red Topper. This fire table belongs to Eric Bergman in Palm Springs and he loves it.
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 fireplace below has a Starfire base with Copper Ruby Red Topper, Fluorgreen Topper, Citron Topper, Orange Topper and Light Violet Topping. With the black granite hearth, it looks great. Thanks Steve Fisher.
The fireplace below in in Lakeland, Florida and was installed by John Addison for his customer. The fireplace has one of our propane pan burners with a remote control. We built a brushed aluminum surround with out the inner glass per the customer request. The glass that was used was a Gray base glass with Black and Copper Ruby Red on top.
As you can see the fireplace was not much to look at until we added our touch.
You be the judge, We think it turned out wonderful!
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!.

The fire pit below belongs to Mike DeVito in Northern California. When I saw his idea I was excited to help him create something new and wonderful. He took a very old mining cart in his front yard and we helped him convert it to a propane burning fire pit! Turned out pretty cool! Next he is getting a fire pit cover made to cover it from debris and who else knows what.
We use a FPPK (fire pit propane kit) with valves, thermocouple, pilot light and air mixer. The glass that was use is:
Starfire base glass over a bed of crushed lava rock,
Yellow Amber Topper
Steel Blue Topper
Turquoise Blue Topper
Copper Ruby Red Topper
Ice Ice Ice
and of course our Diamonds in Clear, Pink, Amber and Blue.
I think this is one really nice idea!
It is all supplied by this 20 lb propane tank
Here is the mining cart with the base plate installed with the burners
Here you see the controls, air mixer and thermocouple and pilot light lines under the base plate
You can use a larger (3/4", 1" lava) as a base under our 1/4" crushed lava as this will save you a few dollars.
Now we pour on the crushed lava to keep the glass from sinking into the larger lava.
Add some Starfire
Splash a few colors
Have your spouse light it in case something should go wrong! (Just Kidding)
Again here are the first pictures we saw of the mining cart. Great Idea!
Mike, you did a great job!
