From THIS! (BELOW) again YUK!
The fireplace below is in Georgia and we will explain as we move down
The first 2 pictures are of how it used to look, nice logs! I don't think so!
The owners of this fireplace called and told us they couldn't use the fireplace because of the soot (carbon-monoxide) (poison)
So we redesigned the fireplace with an air vented pan and our glass
(3/16" Starfire and Ice Ice Ice) and now a clean burn!
The flames are all above the glass and therefore no more carbon-monoxide. Fireplace Shops and dealers won't tell you about this unless you ask, how would you know to ask?
3/16"Starfire and Ice Ice Ice Ice on the left
Pan and ring burner on the right.
Really nice fireplace in the middle of the great room surrounded by 3 glass walls.
The fireplace below has a 3/16" Starfire base and several toppers for color:
Pink Topper G280CF, Cobalt Blue Topper G250CF, Fuchsia Topper G285CF, Hyacinth Topper G272CF , Amethyst Topper, Pale Cobalt Blue Topper G259CF, Aquamarine Topper G252CF, Lilac, Steel Blue Topper G253CF and Purple Topper G275CF.
Now we added a surround to finish it off. If you look on the lower right there is a remote control which is hidden by the surround.

This is the same fireplace as above, but we changed it to 3/16" Starfire and
added an aluminum frame with a special glass.
Again the same fireplace by evening.
By late evening with the glow of the new glass.

The five pictures below are a 3/16" Starfire base with 1/4" Ford Blue, 1/4" Ford Blue Reflective, and 1/4" V Blue Reflective
and as you can see most fireplaces start very drab.
logs are now gone
below sand and lava rock are poured over the burner
The several pictures below are of a modern coal basket of stainless steel with legs or it can be suspended with chains. This will also be one of our new product lines available in several sizes and finishes. The colors used were 3/16" Starfire and 1/4" Clear Pyrite over 1/4" Bronze.
The pictures below have Ice Ice Ice on the right and 3/16" Starfire on the left.
The fireplace below has been painted with our red paint and 3/16" Starfire.
The fire pit below has 3/16" Starfire and 1/4" Azurlite in the center and topped with more 3/16" 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 has 3/16" Starfire and then 1/4" Black was added after the fireplace surround was installed.
The fireplace below started out a little bland and with a little metal work, nice.
3/16" Starfire and Red Topping # 1122.
The fireplace below has an aluminum surround and 3/16" Starfire in Palm Springs.
The fireplace below was hand made by one very creative customer, great job! It has a 3/16" Starfire Base and 1/4" Clear Pyrite added to the surface for a little sparkle.
The pictures below we will be showing how to do a 3" install (all glass), a surround painted black and a triple burner with Ice Ice Ice and 3/16" Starfire.
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 3/16" Starfire is installed for now.
It's hard to see but we did install Ice Ice Ice on top of the 3/16" 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 3/16" starfire installed. Please note the this surround is the metal shell only without the inner frosted glass.
The fireplace below has a 3/16" Starfire base with several red toppings, red toppers, scarlet red toppers and Ice Ice Ice
The pictures below are of 3/16" Starfire Base with 1/4" Black Reflective on top.
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 3/16" Starfire was added to the surface saving money and it did look great. It's as simple as that.
The fireplace below has a base of 3/16" Starfire and topped with Dark Red Orange Topper G235CF
The cool kitchen fireplace below has 3/16" 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.
This fire pit has 1/4" Clear, 1/4" Chunky Clear, 3/16" Starfire and 1/2" Starfire and a water fall going into the fire, pretty cool!
3/16" Starfire Base and a few other colors were added
1/4" Azurlite, Scarlet Topper G72F4, Red Topping #1122, Ice Ice Ice, Copper Blue Topper G251CF, The Copper Blue Topper 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 fireplace below has 3/16" Starfire and Ice Ice Ice. This is a complete makeover and turned out very nice.

Fire Water feature in the lobby/ food court
This fire pit featured 3/16" Starfire surrounded by water. We only did the glass and the burners were by another company.
Three Public Art Projects Selected for Boise Airport
BoiseCity Council has approved the selected artists to design and build an art glass fireplace with Aquatic Glassel, a cast and fused glass wall feature, and a fabric mural for the new buildings of the Boise Airport. Art projects will complement the modern, curvilinear architecture inspired by Idahos natural resources.
Project: Fireplace/Water Feature Artists: Lawrence Ko and Ray Ahlgren from Portland, Oregon and Moderustic of Rancho Cucamonga, California
Budget: $155,000 Site: Food Court in New Terminal Completion: September 2004
Sponsored by: Boises Percent-for-Art, Aviation and Public Transportation Department
A fireplace made of glass (Aquatic Glassel) with a surrounding water basin feature inspired by the stepped landforms of the Boise Riverbanks and nearby reservoir will act as a beacon of light within the new food court area. Sited below a skylight, the fireplace will be a focal point and gathering space for travelers.
The fire pit / fireplace below has a 3/16" Starfire base with red and red orange on top. It is a low flame which produces this blue flame effect.
The fireplace below has 3/16" Starfire and a clean simple look
The fireplace below is in Glendale Hills California. We installed 3/16" Starfire as a base with about 1 lb of Ice Ice Ice on top. Then to finish it off we installed a brass surround with bronze frosted glass. The customer loved it! She is the CEO of Fredrick's of Hollywood! Awesome house by the way.
