The Iron Maiden is a hearth for outdoor use, created from a rusty tube. She is able to revolve so that the fire can be seen from every desired angle. Her striking, impressive exterior makes her an art piece in her own right. Nonetheless, she was initially designed to allow a fire to burn. Her heavy weight and anchor pins ensure that she stands solidly on both natural ground as well as on a stone ground, for example.
As the hearth is warmed for a prolonged period of time, the steel gains a glowing, red exterior. When the steel has cooled down, parts of the tube will be dark, and sometimes even coloured black. If the hearth has not been used for a while, these areas will once again become rusty. The Iron Maiden will then re-acquire an even, rusty appearance.
