Each Scallop Wood Burning Fire Pit is handmade by a skilled metal working artist. He grew up in a Mennonite farming village nestled in the Illinois prairie. The Mennonites taught him the value of hard work in their farms and their machinists showed him the art of joining together of metals. Using brazing rods and arc welders, they repaired and built their farm equipment.Now dozens of years later, he lives and works with his family on the banks of Barton Creek in the rolling hills of Tennessee. Although the tools he uses in metal sculpture have improved over the years, the core skills learned long ago remain the same.
Each piece has a brass plate with its unique number. No two pieces carry the same number. This assures your fire pit's individuality.
