The fireplace pictures below are with Blue Green base FireGlass and Blue Green FireGlass. Marla installed the Blue Green base glass and Blue Green Reflective Fire Glass in both fireplaces.
Very nice Fireplace Design.
Sev in Las Vegas installed Gray base glass (FireGlass) in his direct vent fireplace. A very simple fireplace design.
The fire pit pictures below are of a simple overflow water feature with Fire Stones all around.
The fire ring that was used was a 30" round side feed. We make custom rings for any application. Either for propane or natural gas fire pits or fireplaces.
The fire pit pictures below were taken by and for the Sweat Equity weekly HGTV Do It Yourself TV Show. The FireGlass that was installed was:
Ford Blue base glass,
with an 18" stainless steel fire pit ring burner with out the center to accommodate the water feature. All of the fire glass was placed around the pile of fire rocks in the center. The top of the table is removable if you ever needed to service the water pump or any other reason. Always build and design it with replacement or repair in mind.
Now for the fire pit pictures:
Aquatic Glassel was used in this and every application.
There was an aluminum sub frame built with durock attached. Then the stone was applied to the surface. All of the components are under the removable top.
This episode will air on or around May of 2010 on HGTV and the DIY Network.
The picture of the fire pit below was taken in Newport Beach California. The glass that was installed was Starfire base glass. One very nice backyard and fire pit!
Here are two interesting new style burner pictures! These are floating flames! It's our pan burner/ manifold with Floating Flames!See other burners in our "Pans Burners and Baskets" page!
The stainless steel pan below was created by John Webber of San Diego, California. He created a card board mock up (card board mache') model for us to reproduce for his pan in the fireplace. This is a good way to provide a preview of what is to come. Our philosophy is "Your thoughts, My Hands!" we can build anything you desire. Here are the fire place pictures and pictures of the pan before, during and after!
We are not showing the burners or the controls as everyone we build is different.
Above you see John Webber on the right. He was excited to see his model come to life.
The next several fireplace pictures are from Andy Peeke from New Jersey. Andy did the self installation with his wife. Almost a complete fireplace make over once you see. They use a Starfire base, Amber Topper and Black Topper.
The house is very nice, the fireplace right now is "YUK"!
We used a double "H" to give a wider flame pattern as you will see.
We also used a sand base under the Starfire base glass and just up to the burners, not covering them.
Just so you know, this is a two sided fireplace.
Now 2" of Starfire base glass.
and your done!
The fireplace pictures below are of a self installation with a crushed lava as a bed and Multi Mix base glass poured on top.
Our Multi Mix base glass is never the same and is usually comes with and up to 100 colors!
The fireplace picture below shows what almost happened. The customer asked: Should I Paint? I think it looks good with the used marks, what do you think? I told him if he doesn't buy the paint that I would donate the paint.
He did paint and it looks great!
Now to show you a happy ending! Morris in Canada finished his fireplace any it turned out amazing!
The fireplace pictures below show a happy ending!
YUK, YUK, and YUK! Burning wood is like having an incinerator in your family room.
There is nothing pretty about a wood burning fireplace.
Now, paint the interior, connect the burner.
Pour in the filler.
Test your burner.
Pour in the glass and your done! Morris used a Starfire base glass ad topped it with 3/4" Starfire base glass and Rhubarb Topper.
Very nice Morris! One of our Canadian Customers.
The outdoor fireplace pictures below are in Sacramento, California (for Nancy and Derek Long). This was built by Jake Moss and Jim Corbett who are constantly features on DIY's Yard Crashers!

The glass that was installed is:
Amber base glass,
A bit of Chunky Bronze base glass,
Amber Topper and Nancy is waiting on and to add Amber Diamonds.
The Fireplace below is a Malm Fireplace with Ambr base glass.
The fire pit below was constructed by Andrew Jordan in Miami Florida, www.BuenaVistaFlats.com.
We build a 16" x 16" aluminum pan with a 1/2" lip on top. The propane tank was mounted below the table top. Nice and simple feature!
If your in the area, send them a line or stop by www.BuenaVistaFlats.com.
The fireplace below has a Starfire base glass and is topped with a bit of Pink Rosa base glass.
The fireplace below is a two sided fireplace from the bedroom to the bathroom. This is a very simple conversion. A Starfire base glass was used and topped with Gold bas glass.
Very simple, very clean and very nice.
The fireplace pictures below belong to John Krakowski. This is a complete make over/ transformation of his fireplace. The colors that were used are:

Very nice splash of color!
This next fireplace was done with lack of knowledge! First they installed a 18" single burner and some real interesting choices of glass. What they did do correct is have a 3" sand bed under their yuk glass. The first issue we repaired was the stub out on the left side of the fireplace floor. All we did was install a 90 degree elbow and connect a 1/2" flex line to the new double 24" burner. They had left the flex pointing in the air and then reduced it to a 3/8" line and to top that off added they very sad single 18" burner. We repainted their futile attempt (of painting) with dark metallic brown, added 10 lbs of sand and poured 75 lbs of Starfire base glass over the new burner and sand filler. We will explain as we move forward:
Below you can see the black marks under the paint.
Below you can see the flex line that was installed was left above the surface. Now if we tried that I think our customers would take us out and string us up, what do you think? To top it off this customer was an attorney! Completely happy with what we did.
Here is the new paint on the back walls.
Now we added the Starfire base glass. One thing we have been doing a little bit different is to bring the glass out from the front of the fireplace. We let the glass come out of the fireplace from 3 to 6 inches to make it look even more grand. What do you think?
Here is a the almost finished product of what we do! We left several colors with the customer to add. We will post pictures when they arrive.
Below are teh finished pictures of what else was added:
Ice Ice Ice,
Red R Topper,
Roma Red Topper
I think it turned out very colorful! Check it out!
The fireplace pictures below is a before and after fireplace.
The glass that was installed is:
Galaxy Green base glass,
Ice Ice Ice,
Pale Cobalt Blue Topper,
Lime Green Topper
You be the judge, a very nice mix of colors. Many times better than the BEFORE!
Just the Cobalt Blue Topper is installed above and below.
The fireplace pictures below show the before and after from Bob Kobus. The glass that was used is:
Starfire base glass and Ice Ice Ice, Very nice, contemporary and simple!
Let's go from start to finish:
Nice Logs! NOT!
Bob used an aluminum brick metalized panel.
Then they did their grind pattern.
And here you have it finished!
Yes the logs will be leaving very soon!
Starfire and Ice.
Much better, don't you think?
The fireplace pictures below will show how simple and easy it actually is to install.
Here are a few comments from J.D.
Harriman John. Harriman@dlapiper.com
Subject: More proof of how easy it is to do with Moderustic providing the materials!
We are so happy with our fireglass fireplaces (we have 3!). It has literally changed our lives in that we can use our fireplaces anytime we want with no worry about
cleaning ashes later on. Even better, the look is so superior to fake logs. All of our friends have been wowed by the look. We always send them your way.

Here we go:
Above you can see how nice it WAS! YUK!
Below they painted, we always recommend painting the lines first and then painting each brick separately. Using this technique you can eliminate spots.
Install the burner. We usually recommend curling the flex line from underneath, but this works as well if your flex line is long enough. The reason for the flex line: it allows you to move the burner forward to prevent the flames from hitting the back wall.
Below the lava has been poured and test the flame pattern.
Pour the glass from the front going to the back. You can use a cup or pour from the bucket.
Turn it on and your done!
The glass that was used is:
1 lb of Gold,
Ice Ice Ice for one simple but nice fireplace!
