With the help of a round fire pit, you can organize cozy barbecue evenings out on your terrace or add it to your perfect kit of glamping accessories for excursion all year round.
How to start a fire in a Corten steel fire pit?
Fire requires oxygen to burn and preferably with a flow from below to more easily set the fire. Therefore, our own designed fire grate in Corten is included with these fire bowls, which creates a distance between the bottom of the fire bowls and the grate. Oxygen circulating within the round fire pit makes it easier to light the wood. The Corten steel fire pit should be positioned in a safe place to avoid the spread of sparks. If you want to place a round fire pit on a wooden floor, you should have a fire pit mat underneath. Thinner galvanized sheet metal can be bought at a regular hardware store.
Glow does not require assembly as the undercarriage is welded, stands firmly and is easy to move. Thus, no special preparations are required for these fire bowls. There is plenty of room to put wood in the round fire pit regardless of size you choose. With our grill grate that has a grilling surface, you can grill on the embers.

The round fire pit has a nice rusty Corten surface that only gets more beautiful with age. As we want to make it possible to use Glow in more ways than just a fireplace, there is no hole in the bottom of these fire bowls. You may also use Glow as a pot for your plants. Furthermore create other unique creations such as water lily bath, fountain or birdbath.
You avoid rust waste from, for example, a birdbath by brushing on a plant-based light wax from soy, coconut or rapeseed. It protects well and is not dangerous for the birds. Melt the wax over low heat and brush on a thin, even layer over the rusty surface. Click <here> for instructional video.
If you want, you can easily drill a hole in the middle of the hose with a small metal drill.

About Corten as a material choice for our fire bowls
Corten is a rust resistant steel and this round fire pit achieves a beautiful deep maroon color when exposed to weather and wind. Changing weather changes its surface from the usual color of steel to over time achieving a thin protective reddish-brown rust layer. It is an oxidation process of the steel surface that starts with the help of weather and wind. This process eventually causes corrosion of the steel to stop. The rust layer that forms thus protects this Corten steel fire pit and adheres to the surface of the steel, which prevents moisture from penetrating the fire bowls. The protective patina prevents steels from corroding, does not require painting and does not damage the strength of the steel.
When the steel oxidizes, it takes on an earthy and vibrant color. Corten is very expressive when mixed with greenery, modern environments and material choices such as glass and concrete. The oxidation process of outdoor fire bowls is already visible after 6 months outdoors, but it takes about 2 years for the steel to achieve an evenly rusted surface if you don’t hurry up by brushing on salt water. We have tidied up these fire bowls and it therefore has a nice rusty surface that only gets nicer over the years. We will send you a dish that already has a rusty surface. This is a durable variant that will be a cherished feature to admire for many years in your garden or as one of the top glamping accessories!
