The Bernard Company specializes in creating functional artwork, turning metal into items as varied as a gas fire pit or a cast iron chiminea. The secrets lie in the origins of the material, the craftsmanship with which the art is made, and the unique aesthetic value it lends to your outdoor space. Here are some of the secrets that make for a truly great fire pit or outdoor wood-burning space.
Individually Crafted and Custom Made
Most fire pits are rather generic and not all that creative. Sure, they’re functional, but they don’t really add any real character to your outdoor space. This is one secret of an exceptional fire pit: it’s created specifically by a skilled artisan. Pat Bernard makes visually stunning art pieces from salvaged and recycled materials. He works together with you to create an outdoor wood-burning design that enhances your landscaping. Even if you opt for a piece that has already been completed and is ready for sale, each is one of a kind. These unique creations become centerpieces of your property’s hardscaping, and are instant conversation pieces that your guests will be talking about for a long time after their visit. When each piece has its own history, the difference is instantly visible.
Versatile and Easy to Use
While you may really enjoy the traditional experience of a wood-burning fire pit, nowadays there are also more modern options like gas. This means you can choose whether you want the convenience of a gas or wood-burning model without sacrificing the beauty and warmth of real flames, for true outdoor versatility that meets your outdoor entertaining needs.
Rugged and Durable
Fire pits that use salvaged and recycled materials, like metal, are remarkably rugged and durable. They have an appealing appearance as unique artwork pieces, but they can also withstand the incredibly high temperatures from fire and stand up to the elements over time. The materials used have had a prior life and are carefully reworked to provide the best functionality for their new purpose.
Outdoor fire pits are wonderful additions to outdoor spaces. They add warmth and functionality to entertaining. When they are created as wood burning art with durable materials, they provide beauty that lasts for many years to come.
