About Ohio Flame

I was born with an entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for art and steel. I know it sounds weird, "who says that they're passionate about steel?" Well, I come from three generations of family that have been in the steel industry. Its in our blood. I began my steel career about 16 years ago while working my way through college. It was while studying at Youngstown State University that I discovered that I could combine my two passions and create art through steel sculpture. I received my BFA in 2003 and put art on the back burner while I continued my career in steel sales.

In the winter of 2008, the recession hit and I lost my job. Seeing it as an opportunity to peruse my passion on my own terms, I created my first company at age 29. This steel distribution company that I had created helped me to set establish what I currently focus on. I created Ohio Flame in the spring of 2009. Totally new to retail, I had to rely heavily on my experience in the steel industry until I got myself established. It was a breath of fresh air returning back to my artistic roots. With humble beginnings on eBay and Craigslist, I soon received interest from several national retailers.

Now, almost 7 years later, the company has grown remarkably. However, some things will never change; Our commitment to American Made, Our commitment to honor our US Veterans who have served to protect our great country, Our commitment to work with local vendors and help grow our local economy.

I've been blessed to work with great individuals along the way, encouraging people who champion small business. I enjoy creating American Made products and getting to talk with some of the best customers a company could ever have. I, along with everyone at Ohio Flame, thank you for your support of our company and buying American.

Additional policies and FAQs
We offer a Lifetime Warranty on all of our steel fire bowls. Because we use heavy gauge American steel, we guarantee that the steel on your fire bowl will not rust through in your lifetime. Steel gauge thickness varies by size and model, but range from 3/16″ to 1/4″ thick. Natural steel finishes will develop a natural iron oxide patina over time. This patina will darken slightly over time. The patina process only occurs at the surface level, so your Ohio Flame fire bowl will not rust through, warp or rot out over time. (Lifetime Warranty applies to the structural integrity and durability of the steel bowl and welds. No warranty is offered on screens, grates, paint or finishes. Altering the product or using the fire bowl in any way other than intended will void the manufacturer’s warranty.)
