How time flies . . . Since our last issue, we've been working tirelessly to improve and update our entire
website -- a "work in progress" that con-
tinues. When completed, Standout-Fireplace-Designs.com will be faster
and more user friendly. As a result, you'll be able to quickly access any of the site's 250+ web pages . . .
and its multitude of hearth-related topics from an ever-expanding library of information and images . . . with
just 1 or 2 clicks on your computer keyboard.
Unfortunately, time spent on improving and updating our web pages over the past 8 weeks left me with little
time to publish an issue of our monthly e-newsletter in May. Consequently, our May and June newsletters have
been combined in this issue.
I sincerely appreciate your patience and very much hope you enjoy it!
This issue of our Fireplace Design Ideas e-newsletter profiles three outdoor fire
features from the vast and innovative collection of designs by
Innovative not only in design but in the fuel that fires them, they are:
Simple to Use

Safe & Reliable
(no flue needed)
Ideal for Both Indoor &
Outdoor Entertainment Areas
-- a renewable energy source -- these unique fire features are clean burning and provide heat without any odor,
smoke, ash, or spitting embers. Bioethanol is readily available from numerous online resources, as well as
some of your local fireplace & accessory stores, home & garden centers, and hardware stores. Depending upon
tings, 5 liters (approx. 1.32 gallons) of bioethanol will generally last from 7 hours (on MAXIMUM
setting) to 20 hours (on MINIMUM setting).
EcoSmart is an award-winning brand of The Fire Company, founded in 2002. A pioneer in the
international ethanol fireplace industry, The Fire Company paved the way for today's global standards
and testing plat-
forms. Based in Australia, the company's innovative and eco-friendly fire features are now
available in more than 50 countries around the world.
Pictured below is the EcoSmart Fire Bulb, an attractive, fully portable contemporary design that
can be used to illuminate both indoor and out- door settings. Encased in a weather resistant powder coated steel
wire frame, EcoSmart's AB3 "Around Burner" produces a delightful dancing flame!
Pictured at right and below is the EcoSmart Fire Stix fireplace design -- a striking contemporary
twist on the traditional camp fire. Featuring an elevated 3 liter burner, this design derives its visual
appeal from a sur-
round of varying-sized tubular stain-
less steel "sticks." The EcoSmart Fire Stix
model is available in 3 different finishes -- brushed stainless steel,
gun metal, and black steel.
The stunning "Chalice of Fire," pictured at top and below, blends the el-
ements of fire and water. Created
by Fabric Ten, a design firm based in Kent in South East England, it features an EcoSmart "Around
Burner," which rests upon a custom designed and highly polished stainless steel chalice. Water flowing from
the chalice spills into a sandstone pond. At night, carefully positioned lighting enhances this captivating
fire and wa-
