The charcoal grey clay Chimenea is a traditional Mexican Chimenea. It has a charcoal grey and white paint finish, comes with a lid and black steel tripod stand.
This is a multi-functional chimenea offering both functional and decorative appeal. Traditionally made with a rustic charcoal grey and whitewashed mottled finish, this chimenea makes a perfect focal point in the garden, patio or courtyard.
The Charcoal Grey Egg Mexican Chimenea has been made with cooking in mind with a wide-open fireplace with room to manoeuvre the grill (grill sold separately).
Mexican Chimeneas are hand-made and hand-painted, each is unique so shape and colour may vary. They are made to be rustic and will change in appearance over time and with use. The paint finish on this chimenea will discolour when fired or if left outside all the time. Colour changes do not affect use, and it’s worth noting that Mexican chimeneas can be repainted.
Care & Usage
Mexican Clay Chimeneas are made using traditional methods so by nature the finish is often imperfect; they are a rustic product and no one Mexican Chimenea is the same.
There may be surface-level cracks on the interior from the clay oven or mineral inclusions. These imperfections will not impact the use of the product and are completely normal for clay Chimeneas.
Caring for your chimenea
- Clay chimeneas can be impacted by the elements if not taken care of properly, so to minimise the effects of weathering please cover or store when not in use to keep the chimenea dry and out of the elements.
- Clean out after every few uses to maintain optimal space for hot ambient fires.
- Use the firing process of starting with a small, low fire and slowly build it up to help the material acclimatize to the extreme temperatures.
- Clay is a very reliable material, but they require careful use, and seasoning with small fires to bake the clay solid.
