One of our newest inventions and products is this Vortex Fire
A little bit like a Tasmanian Devil on fire in a box!
Our first public showing was in Palm Springs at the Village Fest Art Fair in August of 2007
Here are a few pictures of the Vortex Fire in public with one of our show trailers. These Trailers are being built for dealerships. We were showing 2 fire pits outdoors, the Vortex Fire and our fireplace indoors.
This was the first public proto type which stood 36" tall. We are building 14 = 36" Vortex Fires for a party in Hawaii and we were contracted to build 32 Vortex Fires as large as 96" and as small as 48" for a Night Club/ Bar/ Restaurant in Las Vegas of we can't say at this time. But as soon as it opens we can post the pictures and let you know who it is. The first showing was a great success!
Send us your opinions of our trailer and the Vortex Fire.
We just took a few dozen rapid fire shots of the new vortex fire in the shop with 2 mirrors in the background. This makes 3 times as much light outdoors and looks amazing.
We took a lot of shots and we couldn't decide on which ones to show, so we showed all of them.
Here are the second generation Vortex fires! We are building 5, 48" tall Vortex fireboxes for a party in Hawaii for Lexus! We will forward the pictures of our Vortex boxes on the beach next month. So here are our next generation boxes. These 2nd generation boxes can be seen in Palm Springs for the next few weeks. We will be then adding our third generation Vortex boxes which were contracted to Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas at the "Prive" Las Vegas!
The 24 pictures below are of the generation 3 of the Vortex Fires. These are Infinite Vortex Fires! The first two we are going to show you have a chromium coating on the inside which reflects hundreds of fires, hence Infinite! The box on the left was done in black and the one on the right is done in bronze, both will reflect many times. You will also notice the fire is more contained as we develop more and more Vortex Fires. We will and or should have the pictures from Hawaii at their Lexus Corporate party that we built 5 = 96" tall Vortex fires for to be displayed on the beach. We even shipped the natural gas over because they only have propane there. Yes we are already developing a portable propane unit.
The next seven Vortex Fires will be made this next week for Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. These will be a generation 4 as they requested a few modifications which we know you will enjoy. So here we go with generation 3!
The next pictures that will be posted will be of the second generation Vortex Fires from Hawaii at the corporate Lexus party. We will then post the Las Vegas, Planet Hollywood Vortex Fires generation 4.
Here are the pictures from Hawaii in Maui of the Lexus party.
There were 5 of our Vortex Fires delivered to Hawaii and placed through out the event. We have learned the Vortex Fires did stay behind for future use in the hotel were this event was held. We will keep you posted and updated. These Vortex Fires did stand 96" tall and measured 18" by 18", as they were noticed by everyone at the event which we were glad to hear. These particular Vortex Fires were developed for www.JPGCO.com
one of the foremost and best display builders in the nation of automotive displays, which you see their work in all national car shows! Check out their website! We are now working on a fourth generation Vortex Fire. Just wait and see what this one will bring!
Here's a twist! One of our customers sent us 2 Heat N Glo Cyclone fires to convert to propane because they didn't know how or want to do it. So if you want yours converted call us. Here are the before and after pictures on the conversion from natural gas to propane.
The first 3 above are natural gas
The 3 below have been converted to propane. Not much difference, just that we could do it and the big guy couldn't provide for the customer.
The difference between our vortex fires and Heat N Glo
is that ours are naturally aspirated and theirs is drawn upward with a fan. I guess they didn't know how to do it our way. We are now working on 6 foot and 8 foot tall vortex fires. These are in proto type and we will post details when we get a chance.
Our Vortex Fires range from $800.00 to $2400.00 and this depends on design needs and the customers needs in appearance. The Heat N Glo start at $8399.00, check it out.
We manufacture up to 54" at this time and we will post when our tall series will be available to the public.
The next set of vortex pictures are of a proto type we had set up to actually have 3 vortex fires side by side in the same fireplace.
We had a cinema photographer come out and take a few hours of film time on our vortex fires for to show the capability of their new camera. We will be posting these videos so you can actually see the true effect of these vortex fires as well.
Here are some pictures of our newest fire and water tables. These were made in conjunction with TC Products. The fire feature won the HPBA Vesta Awards in Georgia this year 2008. Unfortunately they forgot to mention our name? I'm sure they didn't mean to do this. The vortex fire is one of our newest creations this year.
This is a propane fueled Vortex Fire from our collection and design room.
The Vesta Awards were created by Hearth & Home magazine to recognize and honor companies for their innovation in product design and/or technology.
Awards will be presented at an industry-wide ceremony on Friday, February 29, 2008.
The reception and awards program will take place from 5:00-6:30 pm. at the Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, GA.

Here are a few pictures of 5 of our Vortex Fires located in the Prive Las Vegas night club located at the Planet Hollywood Las Vegas. These pictures were taken just after construction but the gas was not connected at that time. We will go back later and take pictures of all 5 Vortex Fires burning at one time. The center Vortex is 48" tall, on either side they are 36" tall and the end Vortex Fires are 24" tall. The glass that was used was a clear crystal with only a bottom frame. The top was free floating. These are located just behind the main bar in the large picture window open to the balcony.
The pictures below are from the balcony looking in to the Prive which over looks the Las Vegas Strip.
The pictures of the Kroner Wedding are now here!!
Please realize these are time elapsed pictures (hand held at night)
There were only 4 Vortex fires to light the entire party and it work very well.
The 8 pictures below are our new electronic ignition Vortex Fires. These were built for the Best Western in Needles California on the Colorado River.
Here are the finished product pictures from the shop. They are each 42" tall and built to their specs.
In the last two pictures you can see the adjusting valve and the electronics.
