The popular Colima chiminea is now available in a shiny “real-glaze” dark red finish – for top quality and durability.
This is a new style finish for clay chimineas that not only makes the chiminea look fantastic, but also has added practical applications. It helps keep the chiminea keep its rich red colour, even after use, and makes it less susceptible to frost as the glazing process helps seal the clay against water.
However, we still recommend you keep your chiminea covered up when it’s cold and wet outside.
A really stunning addition to the Mexican chiminea range – and a real focal point for any garden or other outdoor area.
Comes with stand and matching rain-lid.
No assembly required.

A BBQ grill can also be used with these chimineas, making them not good for outdoor heating, but great for entertaining, too!
You should always season a clay chiminea before use. More information can be found on our blog.
More about “real glazing” – the science bit:
As part of the glazing process vitruous coloured glass powder is applied to the surface of the chimineas, which is then fired in a high temperature oven to 1100c. The glazing bonds onto the surface of the clay. It is a permanent finish that keeps its colour even after firing or leaving outside. Glazing also makes chimineas more water resistant by sealing the pores in the clay. Glazing may ‘craze’ when fired repeatedly or left outside for periods of time. Crazing are fine line formations on the surface of the clay. It is a natural process and will not affect use.
