Much like Italy's Mount Vesuvius this fire pit is statuesque and created to burn. Vesuvius channels smoke and fire up the flue to the sky above. Our trilateral design protects the fire from wind and lessens the spread of sparks and embers. Heavy metal construction soaks up and radiates the heat from the fire. Created using 1/4" mild carbon steel, Vesuvius is maintenance free and designed for smaller spaces.
