Copper Fire Pits double as something that is both decorative and aesthetic as a piece of garden furniture. It’s also a functional way for you to enjoy a fire in the surroundings of your own home, or on a trip somewhere where you want a fire to settle down in front of late at night but need to keep the fire contained.

There is something about sitting outside around a fire with your family and friends that reaches back into those ancient times when the fire was more of a central focus in communal life. You could sit and stare into the flames and listen to a tale or two, wait while your food was being prepared, and warm yourself. Perhaps it is not that far from the traditions of telling horror stories and roasting marshmallows that people indulge in today.

It is one of those simple pleasures that never loses its allure, so having a good fire pit, one that is durable and safe, and allows you to enjoy the experience is a great thing. You don’t have to wait until Halloween.

One can imagine that the person hand hammering these fire pits and recalling their own experiences sat around a fire pit, and wanting to make sure that the product they produce provides those who purchase it with a similarly great experience.

To a degree, if you have a fire pit and a fire you can’t go wrong, but each of these 10 copper fire pits elevate both the design of the object, and also aim to improve the experience of sitting around the fire for you, wherever it is that you choose to sit out under the stars, and whoever you are watching those flickering flames with, and whatever thoughts are being conjured up for you.

Choosing Your Copper Fire Pit

As with a lot of things, when you set out to buy them you may be thinking that it is going to be a simple thing where you just walk into your closest place that sells copper fire pits and then buy the first on that you see. Hopefully the 10 fire pits you have just read about made the whole process a little easier for you, but don’t fool yourself that it is going to be the easiest choice.

Just sit there and think about it for a second – when someone says the words fire pit to you, what is the first thing that you see? Of course, you see the perfect fire pit – the fire pit that your memory has transformed into the quintessential fire pit – the ultimate fire pit that no other fire pit could ever possibly hope to compete with. And then you have to go out and you have to find the fire pit that matches that – or at least comes close to it. You are after the Holy Grail of fire pits. One thing to remember about the Hoy Grail – it was not renowned for being easy to track down.

Why do you want a copper fire pit? That is the big question. Do you just want it because it is cool and you like fire? Does it rekindle some memories of family camping trips for you? Maybe you went camping with your cub scout troop, or it was part of your summer holiday camp.  Is there perhaps a time in your life when you snuggled up with your significant other in front of a fire and made yourself a wonderful memory?

It can be something that comes with a lot of pleasant associations, and perhaps you want to use your fire pit to help you conjure up all those different things at once.

Do you want it to look aesthetic when you are not using it, or do you have a more functional attitude to the whole thing? Perhaps the thing that you want is for that fire to be the biggest fire and for it to burn the longest. If it is aesthetics you are thinking with, do you want it to fit in with your current furniture and the design you have chosen, or do you want it to stand out and be a possible conversation piece?

The number of people you intend to have sitting around the fire may also play into the  choice of the pit. If it is too small and doesn’t kick out enough heat to keep your guests warm, is it going to produce the desired effect? Maybe you need more than one if you want an intimate affair, and then something friends and family can gather around.

If you are going out shopping with someone else, and they have all these things associated with their own idea of what a fire pit is, and what constitutes the perfect copper fire pit, it is going to make things really interesting. It can be done though. You can find the fire pit that is both practical and aesthetic – one that looks great but which you can easily set up, and sit in front of for a long time – one which you can pack up and take with you wherever you want to sit out under the stars and warm yourself.

Happy hunting. You can rest assured that whatever fire pit you eventually choose, you are going to get  a lot of enjoyment out of it. If you have children you may be starting up a tradition with them that started for you at around the same age.
