Steel Fire Pit Designs: Fire Balls are Custom Made

Steel fire pit designs have been really evolving, especially when it comes to the cut away fire spheres, or fire balls. We just love this metal work – the detail, the precision, the scenes that are created. Some are off the shelf, but many are bespoke. If you can think of a scene – it can be turned into a cut away fire pit. It’s a big steel ball, hollow and reverse-cut to display a scene. Custom orders are common with this designs, so while you’re browsing through our examples, think of what your own custom steel fire pit scene might be. What truly represents you?

Down on the Farm Fire Ball

Steel Fire Pit Farm

The jury is out on this one. This is your basic farm scene – and while we understand the impetus, doesn’t it look like the poor guy’s farm is on fire and he doesn’t notice? Kind of like Nero fiddling while Rome burned. Hey, that would make a great scene for a fire ball. In any event, this one called: Appel Crisp Farm Fire Pit Sphere. The ‘crisp’ is what sent us over the edge. Source

Fire Pit Bowl: Cousin of the Fire Ball

Steel Fire Bowl Tribal

Technically a fire pit with dome (and not a sculpted fire ball), we think this comes close. Great fire pit design – tribal dancers around the fire. You could have this design done on a fire ball, very easily. Source
