The Rings Of Warmth: Saturn Fire Pit

The Rings Of Warmth: Saturn Fire Pit

The sixth planet from the sun, Saturn, has a radius nine times that of the Earth. This gas giant is the second-largest planet in our solar system. Saturn's famous icy rings inspired its nickname "The Ringed Planet." These rings comprise of ice and tiny particles of dust, debris. The rings of Saturn are visible from telescopes on Earth. Ice reflects light, such as that from the sun. Thus, the sun lights up the icy rings for universe explorers to observe from our home planet. In our Saturn fire pit design, we sculpt the sphere and rings to emulate this great planet.

The interior temperature of Saturn reaches 21,000 degrees Fahrenheit! Your Saturn fire pit won't reach those entirely extreme temperatures. However, it will bring warmth and awe to those who gather!

Hand-Crafted Durability

The Saturn fire pit measures 14 inches high and 41 inches in diameter. This measurement includes the dimension of the entire fire pit, including the rings. The fire pit bowl itself measures a diameter of 28 inches. The 6-inch ring around the fire pit is also a carbon steel creation. The fire pit weighs a total of 135 pounds, and this solid masterpiece will last for generations. The Saturn fire pit has a matching lid accessory available, discussed later in this blog. The lid adds a separate 40lbs. The entire piece weighs in at a whopping 175 pounds. This reliable steel creation stands strong and durable.

All Fire Pit Art® unique hand-crafted designs comprise of durable carbon steel. The 1/4" thick mild carbon steel undergoes sandblasting to reveal pure steel. Our "secret sauce" is then applied to allow the piece to mature and oxidize in a controlled, timely fashion. The Iron Oxide Patina will darken over time, with every burn. This maturation takes a long time with gas burning pits than wood-burning pits.
