The pictures below are of John Hanson in Northern California and he did a pan burner we provided and installed it himself.
A Clear base with 3/4" Clear 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!

This is in Etiwanda California
Here is a fireplace before and after with Clear
The fireplace below has Clear installed and had a double burner which was converted to a triple for more flame effect.
The fireplace below has Clear installed
The 4 pictures below are all Clear glass
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.
This is in Yorba Linda California with a stainless steel surround and Clear glass.
The 2 fireplaces below are the same fireplace! This fireplace started out with a brick face and Clear glass
After a little black granite and some Clear ice, we have a very nice fireplace!

This next self install is a 10 picture install with :
Azurlite, Clear, Blue Green, Blue Green Reflective, Ice Clear, Ice Blue. Very nice fireplace.
The pictures below are of a self install fire pit with crushed lava rock and a 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 lbs for a 1" cover and 80 lbs for a 1 1/2" cover.
We used the 1" method, 56 lbs which as you can see works just fine and no you can't see though the glass.
The second step will be to add color and toppers which we should post in a few days and night time pictures with the fire on
If you have been told to use more glass than 1" or 1 1/2" of glass over the crushed lava rock, then someone was trying to line their pockets with your money.
The fire pit below has a Clear base with Azurlite and Ford Blue on top. Then it was topped with Dark Red Orange Topper, Yellow Amber Topper and Amber Topping.
This fire pit has Clear, Chunky Clear, Starfire and 1/2 Starfire and a water fall going into the fire, pretty cool!
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 fire pit below has an electronic ignition and 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 Clear base glass. Again by Cesar in San Diego.
The fire pit and fireplace below are located at the hotel Casa 425 in Claremont California, downtown Claremont. www.Casa425.com . The fireplace had a splash of Clear base glass over a ribbon burner with a remote control for a simple but elegant look.
The fireplace is just inside the front doors as you enter to greet you.
The fire pit below is also at the hotel Casa 425, www.Casa425.com and is in the court yard at the hotel. There are 2 of the fire pits and they are 60" x 60" x 20" tall and they are powder coated black with a Clear base glass installed over an 18 round stainless steel ring.
It's like Where's Waldo, can you spot the 2 fire pits below?
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
This is a natural gas fire pit. It was tested as soon as it turned dark, fun!
Now we add the crushed lave rock and glass over that. There are many sub materials you can use as a filler. Just ask.
Great back yard by the way! Chicago, remember?
Now we start to apply the tile for the finishing touch.
The fire pit below is in Glendale, Arizona at the Renaissance Hotel. We installed an electronic ignition with a 30" stainless steel ring. The glass use was a Clear base with Starfire on top and topped with 42 lbs of Apricot Topper. These pictures were taken with the edges still exposed which were covered by a layer of Starfire.
The fireplace below is a propane fireplace with a propane burner and remote control. We used a Clear base with Starfire on top. Then we added:
Medium Amber Topping,
Yellow Amber Topper,
Steel Blue Topper,
Dark Red Orange Topper over the base glass. The controls were covered after the install was finished. If you look closely you can see the pilot light assembly.
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 Clear base glass for a simple a modern look. We will be posting the pictures as we have time in the near future.
We did the fireplace not the white onyx. What we did does not show but it's what made the fireplace what it is, designED !
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 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! Have your spouse lite it in the event they didn't follow the instructions! (just kidding again)!
The fire pit below has a Clear base glass,
Cobalt Blue Topper,
Copper Blue Topper and
Azurlite base glass for one very nice fire pit and back yard!
The Terra Cota pot below is fed by natural gas and was topped with a 1 1/2" layer of 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
The fire pit below is in Newport Beach California at Newport Coast Development. We replaced a hot spark ignition which did not work, with our IPI (intermittent Pilot Ignition) electronic ignition system. The fire pit was 18" deep ands 48" across. This is what was installed:
1 IPI Electronic Ignition for Natural Gas connected to a 1" gas line
1300 lbs crushed lava
144 lbs Clear base glass for a 2" fill over the crushed lava
36" triple stainless steel burner ring
20 lbs Clear Topper
20 lbs Cobalt Blue Topper
20 lbs Copper Blue Topper
We will show your from beginning to end:
Looked pretty nasty when we got there
We started to pour the crushed lava with our electronic ignition being raised to the surface by the lava rock
We built a double box to protect the equipment in the fire pit as well
The ring is now installed
The electronics can be accessed if ever there was a failure of the equipment and you can access it from the surface. Before the equipment was 20 inches below the surface, not a very good idea!
Now we poured the 144 lbs of Clear base over the crushed lava
We only did the fire pit, not the view. That came with the home. But one very impressive view!
Then we spread the Clear Topper, Cobalt Blue Topper and Copper Blue Topper over the Clear base
As you have looked at all of our pictures we would like you to know we use Crystals as our Toppers and Toppings. We don't use "Recycled" glass, ever! We are actually the only company that produces Crystals for fireplace and fire pits.
We tried to get pictures of it burning, but the flames just didn't show. Look above and you can see a flicker in the daylight. Actually the flames were over 16" tall but you can see this in daylight.The contractor will get a few night pictures when they and if they can.
The fire pit below is in San Francisco California. They use one of out FPPK units.
Here you can see the simple construction.
A local artist made the glass inlay top. Very cool!
We supplied the FPPK and the Clear glass
This unique fireplace belongs to Dawn Westlake. She used a Clear base glass with 1/2" Chunky Clear, New Yellow, V Blue, V Blue Reflective, Pale Steel Blue Topper and Citrine Topper. The fireplace turned out spectacular! Great Job!
