I adore my Fire'ness - best gift ever, and already a much treasured, standout feature in our garden. Looks great lit or unlit, throws out heat, and - not an unimportant factor in Ireland - keeps away the midges, so you can sit outdoors in comfort. The workmanship is stunning - it reflects everything around it. We also light it in the winter - just outside the dining room window, which gives the effect of an indoor fire - the warmth of flames glowing. Inspired design.
