Accessories: Glass Fireplace Logs by Jeff Benroth

Issue 43 · Candy Colors · October 28, 2011

A while back we admired Klein Reid's alternative to fireplace logs, the porcelain StillLife Wood Set; now we're coveting cast glass logs from Jeff Benroth, first spotted at the Gardener in Berkeley. "We worked with Chad DeWitt Design here in the Bay Area to develop these logs," says Benroth. "Each one is made by impressing a real piece of wood into a specially bound casting sand, then pouring 2,300-degree-Fahrenheit molten glass into the cavity left behind." The signed, numbered logs are 15 inches long and 4 inches wide; for ordering information, go to Jeff Benroth Glass.
