The fireplace below was installed in Palm Springs, California.

The base glass is Starfire and then we topped it with 1 lb of Pirates Topper.

ps pirates 1
This is a typical fireplace but this one has lava rock stacked up inside, yuck!
ps pirates 2
Below you can see the flame hitting the back wall creating a soot mark, not very nice looking.
The customer didn't want the fireplace painted, why?
ps pirates 3
There's that soot mark!
 If you do paint make sure the work is not spotty!
That looks nasty as well.
ps pirates 4
Above you see the typical hard piped burner installed which is fine for logs or lava.
But this does not really work well for glass.
Below you see the double burner installed with an 18" flex line.
ps pirates 5
ps pirates 6

Test the burner and pour the glass,
now it looks nice except for the soot mark!

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 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 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 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?

Pretty creative!







Great job and very creative.



The fireplace below has starfire and ice.

This is a complete makeover and turned out very nice.

Boise International Airport

Fire Water feature in the lobby/ food court

 koboise 2

boise 1This fire pit featured 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 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 (starfire and 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?

Starfire and 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 fire pit below has a clear base with 1/4" starfire and 1/2" starfire, Yellow Amber Topper.

Cobalt Blue Topper and Emerald Green Topper.

The earth as the back yard and a lot of friends, wow!

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 pictures below are of a self install with:

1/4" and 1/2" bronze, 1/4" and 1/2" starfire

red topper

red topping and about 1 lb of scarlet red topper.


The fire table below has a propane burner and is not configured correctly.
That is why you will see soot (carbon monoxide) the black stuff on the glass.
If you purchased a table from one of these clowns that have you connect a propane tank to a burner ring, you will have problems.
We use all the proper safety valves and air mixers to insure a clean and safe burn. See our propane page.
We are the only company manufacturing a propane burner that is safe and built correctly for these fire tables when you are using our glass.
The glass used was starfire and pale blue topper.
Since and after the install we did supply the correct burner and it is burning clean as it should be.
As you can see after burning for about 10 minutes the soot is and will be an issue. Carbon monoxide IS NOT GOOD FOR YOU!
The fireplace below is in Glendale Hills California.
We installed 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.

Amazing flame work by night and below simple and nice to see by day.

This surround has 4" sides and 3" top and bottom.

Every fireplace is a little bit different as we recommend a cardboard template so you can get a preview of what it will look like before hand.
