In-House Design, Engineering And Fabrication
We create bespoke designs to enhance your world and ours
In 2020 we were commissioned to design and fabricate a large firepit for a local Fremantle family.
The customers were looking for a substantial pit which would be durable, would weather well and out-last cheap imported, commercial products which are widely available in Australia.
They wanted a design incorporating local Western Australian flora and fauna.
We chose to make the body of the firepit from an 800mm diameter spun metal hemisphere. The hemisphere was 3mm thick corten steel.
We welded a base ring of 5mm corten to stabilise the firepit. This included laser cut drainage holes and holes to provide ventilation and airflow.
A decorative collar was welded around the top circumference of the pit. This was decorated with a laser cut design by Carol Stevens depicting honey-eaters and kangaroo paws. The design will be backlit when the pit is in use.
