This is how most fireplaces start
Below is a 1/4" Clear Base with a double burner
Again this is how most fireplaces look after you remove the doors and or screens
and below is after you paint the back and side walls then add
1/4" Clear Base with Blue over the top
What a difference! Beautiful!!
The pictures below are of John Hanson in Northern California
and he did a pan burner we provided and installed it himself.
A 1/4" Clear Base with 3/4" Clear Base on top
Here is how it all started
The bottom of the pan goes in
The top goes on and you light it
Now the glass
and now the magic
This is how the pan started
There you have it, simple as that. Great job John Hanson!
The fire pit below has 1/4" Clear with our very own Ice Ice Ice!

This next self install is a 10 picture install with :

The pictures below are of a self install fire pit with crushed lava rock and a
1/4" Clear Base
1/2" to 3/4" lava rock is use just to the bottom of the ring.
If you want a higher center then pour a little more filler on top of the ring.
Now we will pour the crushed lava rock (1/4" to 3/8") over the filler as this will stop the glass from falling through the lava rock.
Finish shaping and pour the glass
This is a 36" fire pit which requires 56 pounds of glass for a 1" cover
and 80 pounds of glass for a 1 1/2" cover.
We used the 1" method, 56 pounds of glass, which as you can see works just fine and you can't see though the glass.
The second step will be to add color and toppers
If you have been told to use more glass than 1" or 2" of glass over the crushed lava rock, then someone was trying to line their pockets with your money.
The darker the color glass, the less glass you need.
The fire pit below has a 1/4" Clear Base with 1/4" Azurlite
and 1/4" Ford Blue on top.
Then it was topped with Dark Red Orange Topper G235CF,
Yellow Amber Topper G245CF and Light Amber Topping #1437.
This fire pit has 1/4" Clear, 1/4" Chunky Clear, 1/4" Starfire
and 1/2" Starfire and a water fall going into the fire, pretty cool!
The fire pit below has an electronic ignition and 1/4" Clear glass installed.
This is next to the San Diego Stadium Downtown San Diego at the "Legends" Again this was installed by Cesar, one of our dealers in San Diego.
The fire pit below was built and installed with 1/4" Clear Base glass. Again by Cesar in San Diego.
The next fire pit was designed by and built for Kevin Leys of Chicago. He did a great job and you decide.
First he started with a single wall construction fire box with a pan on the top
Then it was framed for exterior plywood or you could use metal studs and wonder board.
The gas valve was located to the outer framed wall
We have over the last few years helped design and and sold dozens of custom fireplaces.
The one here was installed in Beverly Hills, California.
We designed the fireplace, custom candle pan burner with electronic ignition.
We used a 1/4" Clear Base glass for a simple and modern look.
We did the fireplace not the white onyx. What we did does not show but it's what made the fireplace what it is.
If you take the time to notice the nice texture of the glass.
It's because we tumble it (patent pending) that's what also make us and our glass different from anyone else.
The fireplace below is a propane fireplace. A bed of crushed lava was installed and a 1/4" Clear Base glass was used to cover it all up.
Step 1, paint it!
Step 2, cover the old brick!
Finish the face and floor, very nice!
Install the propane pan burner
Fill in and all around the pan with crushed lava rock.
On the left side you can see the gas connection which will soon be covered as well. On the right side the control cover will be covered as well. This propane pan burner was fitted with a remote control, radio frequency.
Now that your finished your ready for FIRE!

Cobalt Blue Topper G250CF, Copper Blue Topper G251CF and

The Terra Cota pot below is fed by natural gas and was topped with a 1 1/2" layer of 1/4" Clear over a bed of crushed lava rock.
The gas line was drilled from the bottom of the deck and the pot was placed on top
