Braziers: Original Ideas for Your Garden

Braziers are increasingly present in gardens and on terraces.

If their original function is to make fire in order to warm up when it is cool outside and thus be able to enjoy its exterior even in autumn and winter, they are alsoa decorative element in their own right even when they are extinguished.

The most common models are round or square, and black. Not really enough to differentiate yourself from the neighbor and bring a real touch of originality to your garden.

Fortunately, there are models that are out of the ordinary, I will present them to you in this article.

The brazier ball

These braziers are doubly original: by their spherical shape and thanks to the patterns cut in the metal.

Aide variety of motif sexist: plants, animals, forest scene with deer and trees, or geometric shapes.

Thanks to the decorations, these braziers are aesthetically pleasing even when they are extinguished. And when night falls, the flames continue to highlight the drawings.

Most are made of corten steel. It is a steel that has a rusty appearance.

This is the case of the model that I selected for you and of which you have the photo next to it. This is Esschert Design’s FF294 reference

The brazier with fireplace

I like this type of braziers because their slender shape brings volume in a layout.

They also have a practical advantage: the chimney directs the smoke from above. This limits the risk of the wind sending it into your face.

Unlike the low braziers that are put in the center of a terrace with seats all around, I recommend that you put these models with fireplace on the side, so as not to have the conduit in your field of vision when you talk with your guests.

There are models with fireplaces in rounded or pyramidal version. I find the Bloomfield Volantis pretty and its spark arrestor is a guarantee of safety.

The Mexican brazier

The Mexican brazier is traditional model that will bring character to your exterior.

It has a fireplace and is made of terracotta.
Terracotta is refractory, which allows it to accumulate heat and then release it.

Mexican fireplaces are found in the raw color of terracotta, others are colorful, and some have embossed decorations.
There are even black metal variants for a more modern look, but in this case, you lose the traditional side.

They come in all sizes.
I gave you an example of a model with small dimensions that will easily fit into small spaces: the Tampico by Red Fire.

The brazier planta

There are more and more braziers also serving as planta. In fact, they are round models with aide rim on which you will cook the food.

And I would like to make a little interlude right away about barbecue braziers.
As you know, the principle of a barbecue is to put the food on a grill directly above the heat source. And we avoid as much as possible that they are in contact with the flames, it is the embers that we are looking for.
So, if you opt for brazier with a barbecue grill, you will not be able to enjoy the fire at the same time as you cook the food.

That’s why the braziers plan has are much more practical: you make a real fire in the center, without the flames touching the grills that are on the metal cooking part on the side.

I particularly like models that are high, they are much more practical than those close to the ground to cook food.
This is the case of the reference EFP56CO from Purlin that I put in photo.

The gas brazier

We rarely talk about gas braziers, yet they have the advantage of being very easy to use with instant ignition.

The other interest is to be able to start on shapes that we do not see with the wood versions, especially all in length.

You can buy a complete gas brazier or just the fire tray to integrate it into a homemade realization.

The model I have put in photo, HF48708AA-EU from Teamson Home, has the advantage of being able to serve coffee table, the flames are adjustable and the protective glass guarantees maximum safety.

The Hublot brazier

This time, it is not a category of braziers that I present to you but a model in particular for which I had crush: the Hublot creation of the manufacturer Buschbeck.

What distinguishes it from others?
The part where the wood is burned forms a circle vertically. This is clearly a model that will catch the eye on your terrace.
