A Fire and Ice Fireplace in Texas with Bronze Rust Copper Base Glass, and sprinkles of Gold Base Glass and Starfire Base Glass.
The next fireplace belongs to Scott Dexter. He installed: Ford Blue Base Glass, Ford Blue Light Reflective Base Glass, Clear Diamonds, Scarlett Red E.D.Diamonds and finished it with Yellow Amber Topper.
The next fireplace is a self installation/ remodel. They installed, 1/8" Gray Base Glass under 1/4" Gray Reflective Base Glass.
Very nice but dated and out with the old.
Steel surrounds manufactured and installed along with 1/8" Gray Base Glass under 1/4" Gray Reflective Base Glass.
The next few Propane Pan pictures are of a rake pan. Being 1/2" in the front and 2" in the back. Sitting on 2" legs underneath. We also placed a 2 1/2" metal curtain on the front to conceal the controls and battery compartment. This pan is constructed in steel or can be made from any metal or finish you like. Each of these pans are built for your fireplace specifically. We have very few "off the shelf" items.The remote control allows to adjust from low to medium to high.Testing the Propane Pan at 100,000 btu's. We used a triple 18" burner giving us 6 rows of flames.
If you look closely you can see the battery operated ignition system on the lower right of the pan.
Here is the metal curtain we made. The pan was made to be 3" smaller all around in the fireplace, the front being flush to the front of the fireplace with the metal curtain filling the voids on the sides. Above you can see the simplicity of the curtain.
Now finished and ready for installation and fire glass!
The next fireplace is a typical 70's/ 80's I am trying to be creative with my logs and adding candles! NOT! YUK!!!
The glass that was used was a base of Amber Base Glass and topped with a few pounds of Gold Base Glass. Clean, sleek and it produces heat like you have never seen! Typically after 45 minutes to an hour we find that the glass gets up to and over 600 degrees, guaranteed!
The fireplace below is in Pasadena, California. Ursula did a nice job, recently she had us update it withe Sterling Silver
The next 5 pictures are from Ursula in Pasadena. She just recently had us update her fireplace with a Sterling Silver
interior. Nice touch!
The next fireplace was installed by Kirk Lewis. He wanted a splash of matching colors and he got it! He installed: Bronze Base Glass, Bronze Rust Copper Base Glass, 1/4" Black Base Glass, California Gold Base Glass, Platinum Base Glass, 1/2" Bronze Base Glass, and 1/2" Starfire Base Glass.
Now we have a splash of color!
The next set of fireplace pictures are from Jim Malless. We made a 4" tall pan and installed a battery operated remote control under the pan. The pan has a removable front face to conceal the components. The glass that he installed is: Starfire Base Glass, Clear Base Glass under the Starfire Base Glass, (more cost effective) and a few Amber Diamonds! These pans are built to fit each fireplace one at a time. Yours will be made just for you.
The next fireplace ventless conversion was from Eric at Neutral Interiors. We built a pan to recess into the floor of the fireplace and to access the controls Eric cut a hole on the left side of the fireplace for easy access in the event it had to be reset or turned off. We will explain as we move on: The lower hole is the access hole.
Simple, clean and finished! He installed Starfire Base Glass.
The next "B" vent or Direct Vent
fireplace is from Mark Basillus, Showing how easy it actually is. Again for all of those "Dummies" out there that keep telling you that you can't do it. Also keep telling you "the sky is falling!" I had to say that! Mask it off and paint
! Oh look! Nice logs! NOT!
Ed, Wanted to share with you the photos of our finished conversion to FireGlass. We are really pleased that we decided to paint the inside of the fire box red. That coupled with the glass had made the fireplace a focal point to our living area! Mark Basilius [mailto:MBasilius@evgvikings.org]
The fireplace below has a Clear Base Glass with: 1/2" Clear Base Glass, V Blue and Chunky Clear Base Glass, Blue Green Base Glass, Azurlite Base Glass Blue Pyrite Base Glass on top.

Nadine is very creative and always tries to add her personal touches.
Here is one more Ugly Glass picture
! This is actually displayed in a fireplace shop in Temecula, California! You be the judge. This is why we take soooo many pictures to show what we actually supply!
As you can see below is the dog house to allow air to flow to mix fresh air with the propane.
Notice the 3" tall 1/2" thick front screen at the bottom! Pretty amazing!
The next fireplace was installed by Brian Cooper. The glass that he installed is: Starfire Base Glass,
Bronze Reflective Base Glass and Emerald Green Topper. Nice, huh?
