Typically, a metal fire pit is portable and can be purchased at a home improvement store for a very reasonable price. Portable metal fire pits come in a variety of sizes, styles and finishes. The most common metals used for fire pits are powder coated steel and copper. A copper fire pit starts off a beautiful penny-like color, but over time will weather and develop a green patina. The powder-coated steel fire pits retain their black finish.

Metal can also be used to create custom fire pits. A local foundry is an excellent place to go if you want a custom designed metal fire pit. At a foundry they will be able to cast a fire pit to your exact specifications. When you work with an experienced metal worker, you will not be restrained by the typical pit shapes and styles available at home improvement stores.
