About Us

All of our fire pits are hand crafted and designed to last a lifetime. With quality, beauty and a great price, our fire pits add light to your life.

Our Story

Several summers ago, my husband and I were looking for a way to spend time outside with our family and a place for our teenagers to hang out at home with their friends. We make carbon steel tanks in the family business, MassTank. We realized that the head of the tank would make a simple and nearly indestructible fire pit. We simply turned over an old tank head and found a flat spot for it in our yard. We stacked a cord of firewood next to it, bought a few chairs and we were in business. The carbon steel weathers to a warm rusty brown patina and will last for many years. We have thoroughly enjoyed our beautiful fire pit and we want to share them with you, our customers.


Fancyfirepit.com is a small, family owned company with a background in fabricating steel into functional things. With the launch of this new company, we are focusing on making carbon steel into something that is not only functional but beautiful as well. Joy started her career as a professionally trained chef and then spent 17 years home with her three children, stuffing lunchboxes and making spaghetti carbonara, the family favorite, for birthday dinners.

Our Fire Pits Are Eco Friendly

Fancy fire pits are made from recycled carbon steel. We take previously used carbon steel tank heads, clean and sandblast them and create beautiful fire pits out of them. These tank heads would be turned into scrap metal and take up space in a landfill. Instead, they are being recycled and made into a product that is functional and provides a wonderful space in your yard to gather around and spend time with your family and friends. Light a fire, toast a few marshmallows and add light to your life!
