Dewdrop is the foundation of the Glowbus collection.
The Glowbus Dewdrop is an eye-catcher in any garden thanks to its timeless design. The ideal blend between raw simplicity and pure outdoor luxury. It feels at home in a sleek minimalist city garden as well as a monumental park garden. An eye-catcher during the day, a source of cosiness in the evening; enter a new world of elemental fire with the Glowbus Dewdrop.
Ten years ago, Andreas Ketels, artist and founder of Glowbus, created the dewdrop which is the foundation of the Glowbus collection and is now included in the ever-growing Glowbus collection.
The Glowbus Dewdrop is created as a different and more alternative to the usual well-known fire pits. With the Dewdrop series Glowbus wants to create unique experiences with their distinctive and beautiful fire baskets'. The fire pit is drop-shaped and resembles a flame at the same time, and it will look beautiful in any garden!
Not only is the Glowbus collection the result of years of creative thinking and purposeful design, but every piece in the collection is also incorporates a perfect balance of authentic handicraft and modern techniques. This has earned them the label ‘’Handmade in Belgium’’.
The Glowbus Dewdrop is a beautiful, minimalist luxury fire-pit that will provide warmth to your family and friends throughout the year. This ideal blend between raw simplicity and pure outdoor luxury lets you discover a new world around a crackling fire. The Dewdrop is a unique and eccentric design making sure it will always be the talking piece of your garden.
Glowbus employ a purposeful choice of materials that optimises the lifespan of its products. Thus, the Glowbus Dewdrop is made of Corten Steel (weathering steel). On average, this beautiful rust-coloured steel last eight times longer than regular steel. Corten steel owes its durability to its high-density oxide skin (rust layer). It shuts off the steel from the outside air and thus forms a protective layer between the steel and the natural elements. This gives it its unique and vibrant rust-colour.
The Glowbus Dewdrop is designed for all kinds of weather. Temperatures from -1000° C (-1768° F) to 1000° C (1832° F) are no issue at all and due to its robust shape and weight, it can perfectly withstand winds of up to 200 km/h (125mph).
The Glowbus Dewdrop is available in 3 sizes: Dewdrop M is suited for compact zones such as a patio or smaller garden; the Dewdrop L is suitable for larger gardens; and the largest size – Dewdrop XL – adorns a large park and landscape gardens or creates an experience in hotels and at tourist locations.
Due to its weight (Dewdrop L is 220 kg / 485 Lbs), you would probably prefer not to move this fire pit around your garden every week; however, the Dewdrop M and L can be moved fairly easily by rolling the Dewdrop on its side and manoeuvring it to its desired position. The Dewdrop XL requires a bit more power and is usually positioned with the help of many strong people and more commonly the use of a mechanical lifting device.
Glowbus wants to ensure a safe and unharmful rusting process. And for that reason, we recommend placing the Glowbus Dewdrop on a suitable surface (due to its Corten Steel material). The oxide skin that gives the Corten Steel its unique character may cause a slight discolouration to sensitive surfaces in wet conditions. This is most likely when the oxide skin is still forming. It’s best to place your fire pit – or any other object made of Corten Steel – on sand, gravel, or grass.
Glowbus believe in sustainable and ecologically responsible products, thus they only work with the most durable materials. This ensures your Glowbus will deliver those special moments for an entire lifetime.
Glowbus is environmentally aware and is an advocate for the preservation of nature. Thus, for every Growdrop candle centrepiece sold, Glowbus donates an amount to organisations committed to the conservation of nature and forests. This means that for every purchase, it results in 25 new trees being planted. They work together, tree by tree, on a phenomenal Glow Forest, now about 7 hectares.
A personalized ash plate is also available for an additional cost. Please contact us for more details and pricing.
The Glowbus Dewdrop requires almost no maintenance. The only thing we recommend is that you remove the ashes if you won’t be using the fire pit for a long time.
