All clay chimineas are hand made in wood fired brick kilns and hand finished using layers of water based pigments.
This Clay chimenea is handmade using traditional methods. It comes with a metal stand and rain lid and features a lizard design. The chimenea also features BBQ grill and pizza stone to enable cooking of food including pizza. The grill and stone can be removed to use the chimenea as a patio heater. (Note the grill and stone are separate so you can cook on one or the other)
Comes in one size and design.
Handmade by pressing slabs of clay into plaster moulds before being cooked in a wood fired brick kiln reaching very high temperatures. Hand finished using layers of water based pigments and a final lacquer.The chiminea comes with care instructions which include the following:
CURING: You will need to fill the bottom of the chimenea with 7cm of sand or lava rocks before any use. For the first fire place a small quantity of kindling wood and rolled newspaper in the unit. Light the paper and allow a flame to build up. Once sufficiently alight, add a small log and allow to burn slowly. Allow the log to burn out and the Chimenea to cool. Repeat this procedure a minimum of three times. This will seal any pores with soot and will cure the Chimenea.
CARE: The Chimenea has been pre-treated with sealant but annual re-treating with La Hacienda Chimseal is recommended to extend the life and to protect the product from weathering. The chimenea must be cured before use (see above)The unit may be left outside all year providing a good quality (La Hacienda) chimenea cover is used to help protect it from rain and cold weather. The Chimenea surface will age and discolour naturally. Discolouration of the paint will occur from the first use. If a lid is provided with your model always place this on the Chimenea top when NOT in use to protect from rainwater ingress.
