MAKE pal, metalsmith, and fire artist Jon Sarriugarte is now selling fire pit kits, all the components you need (minus the gas supply and pit itself) to create your own fire garden. Jon has had these gardens set up at Maker Faire, and as Mister Jalopy says on D+R, “I can attest that they have an almost magical quality to them. I suppose it is a basic primal instinct to gather and celebrate around fire.” I agree completely. Definitely something very enchanting, hypnotic, about watching the flames dance around on the sand. The kits sell for $95.
