The almost mysterious look of this chimenea, with a Cornish Cross on its funnel, and a textured surface clay finish, painted grey, make it the ideal ornament, as well as outdoor fire, in leafy gardens or natural spaces. Painted in a new green and red shade over the texture of the surface. Complete with metal stand and clay lid the Cruz is 110cm high.
Mexican chimeneas are the best functioning burners of all patio fires. Their structure and design, perfected over centuries in Central America make them the easiest chimeneas to light and the most efficient burners. No need for roaring fires, the clay becomes hot and radiates the heat.
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.
