1/4 " Thick Mild Carbon Steel
Steel Base Plate is not included
Each Fire Pit Art® creation is made from one quarter inch thick mild carbon steel and has an applied iron oxide patina on the outside. The interiors are hand rolled with a dense high temperature resistant coating and have a one and one half inch diameter rain drain in the bottom. There is no required maintenance even in cold, harsh environments and can be left outside year around. These fire pits are safe on wood or composite decking if they rest on a one and one half inch thick (or thicker) stone base that should be approximately three feet square. Artisan crafted fire screens with a wood loading hatch are available for most models. All designs are easily adapted to propane or natural gas equipment. Each fire pit is hand crafted and individually numbered on a small brass plaque attached to the base ring.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Rick Wittrig was born and raised in a tiny Mennonite farming village amid the endless sea of corn and soybeans that is the Illinois prairie. He learned steel fabrication and carpentry skills building farm equipment and homes. Admiring the strong work ethic, high quality products and integrity of the craftsman with whom he worked, Rick carries those values into creating his functional steel art. He now lives on Barton’s Creek in Tennessee with his family and enjoys making beautiful fire pits for others to enjoy. A highlight in his career was creating a commissioned Fire Pit for 2010 Winter Olympics in Whistler B.C. Canada.
Symbolic of ancient incense burners, Nepal offers an immense caldron filled with a soothing wood fire creating positive energy around your home and family.
