This article is a pictorial showcasing three fireplaces. One is a brick Rumford fireplace, in which the brick are laid in a herringbone pattern in the coping and above the mantle. The brick match the pavers in front of the hearth in setting and finish. The above-mantel area is set back 4 inches from the edge of the surrounding exterior and 6 inches from the mantel's edge. Fire brick (4 1/2 x 9 x2 1/2 inches) encases the Rumford fireplace inside. This fireplace, in a residential development in Puyallup, Wash., was among the first to be constructed since Washington state certified Rumfords recently. The Rumford design incorporates a tall wide shallow opening with widely splayed covings or jambs; it reflects as much radiant heat into the room as possible. Located in Big Sur, Calif., the second fireplace described is a stone fireplace that has a dry-stack appearance. Each stone was shaped to fit close to the next, and the mortar was set back from the edge of the surface. Some of the joints were as tight as 1/8 inch. It is possible to look right through this fireplace, which was made with 20 tons of stone and measures 8 feet wide and 9 feet high. It rises up to a split roof line in a Tuscany-style stone house. The third project featured is a 52-foot-high, double brick-sculptured fireplace that ascends through the skylight of a building at Rogers University in Tulsa, Okla. The looming fireplace's proximity to the skylight allows a lot of natural light to show off the sculptures' details and the light shading of the brick. The fireplace brings in the two brick used on the exterior of the building--but it does so in reverse.
