This fireplace belongs to Dr Bernstein, who got a whole lot of good stuff.  Starting with a double 24" steel fireplace burner, and reflective Sterling Silver panels.

The Doctor filled her fireplace with several of our unique fireballs, and a mixture of two sands, Black Magic and Green Sand.

These pictures come to us from our client George Indzheyan.  He has a beautiful modern fireplace that we helped make even better!

George Indzheyan George Indzheyan

George wanted some fireballs, so he placed some similar sized balls in his fireplace first, in order to determine what exactly he wanted.  He then connected his new fireplace burner to his gas outlet, which is as simple as connecting a garden house. 

George IndzheyanGeorge Indzheyan  

He lit the burner to make sure everything was going to work as expected and then placed the sand below the burner.

George Indzheyan George Indzheyan

George then added his Bronze Rust Copper & Azurlite fireglass, Metallic Warm Brown fireplace paint, four 4" inch Dark Brown (Gen1) fireballs ED Teal Diamonds, and Diamonds with a Powder Coated Steel Surround.

We use a piece of stainless steel in the front to contain the glass to cover the burners and keep the glass level.

The fireplace below has:

A Clear base with Lime Green Topper, Red ToppingsYellow 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 topper and Red Orange Toppings, Scarlett, 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 2 outdoor fireplaces below are in Northern California at the Hyatt. They called us about soot on the glass. When we looked at the pictures our first thoughts were PROPANE! No these are natural gas. The fix was actually very simple. This was caused by a down draft from the chimney which we partially closed the flue which stopped the down draft and as you can see they are just fine now.

"Ed we love our new fireplace!!
Wow, it is awesome and couldn't have been easier to set up. Made the
purchase late Friday and it took me approx 2 hrs Saturday (while watching
TV) to set up properly including paint and clean up.
I did run into a small problem with the material continuously falling out of
the fireplace . It seemed that I actually used too much material. I was able
to resolve the problem by utilizing the original glass door frame as a
decorative and very functional stop. It is held in place with clear silicon
and the material was allowed to contact and dry into the silicon. ( see pics
) In my case this worked out well as my accent color is Gold and so is the
trim piece of the frame. I imagine this can be done on many fireplaces and
the trim can be painted is needed to match. Feel free to use our pictures or
the idea about the trim ( if it is original ) on your web site or sales

Thank you again

The fireplace below is a self install by Joyce and Tom Dane from beginning to end. The fireplace was painted, converted and finished with Pink Rosa. This is a direct vent fireplace and for those of you who say it can't be done, well you just don't know how!

jd 4 jd 5

Above you can see they painted the interior and it now looks much better.  The lava filler underneath the burner.

jd 6 jd 7

Test the burner and pour the glass. There are so many who tell us this can't be done. You can leave the doors on or take the doors off, which ever you prefer.  We actually prefer the doors and screens removed and finish with some sort of surround.

Hi Ed,

I finally managed to finish the fireplace. We have decided to place a 2" piece of metal in front (which hasn't been done yet), though, to keep the glass off the ledge. We thought it would be deep enough, but that didn't quite work.

To enable me to keep the center area smooth, we had to place the burner on top of the wall pipe, which created a rather high burner placement. This ended up creating a bit of a problem because I had a steep slope to the hearth. This is why I need to add the metal strip in front--so the glass doesn't roll down and come out of the fireplace. We had decided to not have a glass door on it, although if we find something we really like, that could change.

 The pics might come in 2-3 e-mails, but I'll describe them here. The first few pics are duplicates of ones I already sent you.

1. Original fireplace, emptied out.

2-3. After painting with the dark blue from the chart you guys gave us. The wall was painted to match, although, I'm not sure I really like it. I'm trying to reserve judgement until I see it for awhile.

The damper handle is a brass duck head which wasn't even noticeable when it was all black.

4-5.New burner in place. This created more problems than expected due to the wall pipe being higher than most. We ended up using regular lava rock, since we couldn't find the smaller rocks. Then we added small pea gravel to fill in gaps around the lava rock. After the burner was finally level, we added the sand.

6. Testing the burner with sand added.

7. Clear glass base added.

8. Rest of colors were added - Starfire, Azurlite, Cranberry, with a little Steel Blue and a few Ice Cubes.

9-10. All finished and burning.

We're still working on the right side of this wall which has cabinets holding the TV and storage. Once the entire wall is finished, I'll send you one final pic of the entire wall. Not sure how soon that will happen, so don't wait for it, if you want to post these pics on your website.

I want to thank you for all your help. Your store was great to visit, so we could pick our glass out in person. Your staff was very helpful and we had a great time making our final color choices. I'll will definitely recommend you to others.

The fireplace below is a propane pan burner with a lava rock fill. You don't want to crush your own lava rock because of the time. You can use larger lava around the edges of the pan but you will want to use crushed lava in the pan up to the surface of the burners. The glass use in this fireplace was a Ford Blue base with Ford Blue Reflective on top. Topped with Clear Pyrite and Amber accents. The install went very well except for the rock crushing episode.
