Five computer games characters that would make perfect Fire Pits

Welcome to Burned by Design, the home of handcrafted wood burners and fire pits. Located in our Yorkshire workshop in the UK, we take pride in creating unique and stunning pieces that add a touch of creativity to any home or garden environment.


We’ve made fire pits in the form of Darth Vader, R2D2 and Boba Fett. We’ve created custom wood burners in the shape of Terminator, Predator and Freddy Krueger. We’ve even got a BBQ in the form of the DeLorean. What we haven’t seen many of so far, but we think would make for simply stunning burners, are computer games characters. 

What better way to enhance your fire pit experience than by adding a touch of nostalgia with a custom-made wood burner inspired by your favourite computer game characters? 
Each of our fire pits is handmade to order with great care and precision. Our small team of skilled craftsmen, led by our founder Alex, ensures that every fire pit is a true work of art, capturing the essence of the chosen character or theme that we are presented with by our customer. 

Without further ado, let's now delve into five great ideas for custom fire pits, inspired by classic computer and console games characters.

Bowser - The Fiery Villain from Super Mario 

The Super Mario games series has captured the hearts of gamers worldwide, and one character stands out as the perfect inspiration for a fire pit - Bowser. As the main antagonist, Bowser is known for his fire-breathing abilities and fearsome appearance. Imagine the delight of your guests as they gather around a fire pit shaped like Bowser's iconic face, with flames flickering from his mouth. This unique wood burner would undoubtedly be a conversation starter at any gathering. 

Pacman - The Classic Circular Hero



Pacman, with his simple yet iconic design, lends itself perfectly to being transformed into a fireball globe fire pit. Picture a spherical fire pit with Pacman at its centre, surrounded by smaller fire pits in the shape of the ghosts from the game. As the flames dance within the pits, the nostalgic charm of Pacman comes to life, creating a visually stunning centrepiece for your outdoor space. 

Master Chief - The Iconic Halo Protagonist

For fans of the Xbox series of games, a fire pit inspired by the helmet of Master Chief from Halo would be a dream come true. The distinctive shape of the helmet, with its sleek lines and futuristic design, lends itself perfectly to being transformed into a wood burner. Imagine relaxing around a fire pit that pays homage to this beloved character, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere for gaming enthusiasts and outdoor gatherings alike.
