Travis & Haley Seera
The Ideal Personal Fireplace
"FLÎKR Fire was born out of the desire for a simple, safe, indoor fireplace that could operate on clean-burning, inexpensive, and readily available fuel. This piece is inspired by the wabi-sabi aesthetic: simply doing what it is designed to do, accepting flaws, and bringing natural elements and textures inside the home. When we say "portable," we mean it: living room, porch, kitchen, dining room, bedroom, camping. FLÎKR Fire is your personal, portable fireplace."
- Travis Seera, FLÎKR Fire Co-Founder
this thing is a lot of fun. It's easy to light (you just have to be careful not to spill the fuel, isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol). More important, it's very easy to extinguish--just cover the burner with a coaster or pretty much anything flat and four or five inches in length. You'll discover of course how substantial this thing is. It's made of concrete, after all, and is going to outlast all of us. There's no obvious reason why it shouldn't do so nearly forever. When you fill it, it'll burn for about a half hour. The flame is attractive; it's safe inside the home; it's easy to light; it's very easy to extinguish; and it'll burn itself out in a half hour. In other words, it's no-maintenance. It's not the same as a fireplace, but for a table-top experience, it's great. I'm giving some as holiday gifts this December & I'm confident recipients will enjoy it as much as we do.

I also work with concrete... sculpting rocks (kinda like Disney land) use acid stain for interesting color... wonder if it could be done to ur product? I think it is a nice piece... great flame... deeper to add time to the burn maybe? anyway... good job thanks for adding to my ambience Dave
The definition of elegance? An object that creates form, function and aesthetic pleasure with a minimum of elements. That describes FLIKR Fire2 concisely. A simple yet elegant design that can be integrated into your decor or lifestyle. It adds a grace note to any room or occasion. I am completely happy with FLIKR Fire2. In fact after ordering one, I ordered another and plan on giving the gift of elegance to friends at Christmas time. That is the very definition of a work of art.
Love it will be buying many in the near future.
