Place the stoneware vessel flat on a work surface. Fill the bottom of the vessel with a 1- to 2-inch-deep layer of pea gravel.
Set the three gel fuel canisters in a triangular configuration on top of the layer of pea gravel.
Unroll the metal hardware mesh and cut a circle from the mesh with metal snips. Cut the circle so that it will fit tightly inside the bowl over the top of the gel fuel canisters.
Cut a hole around the opening of each gel fuel canister. Insert the hardware mesh inside the vessel and rest it on top of the fuel canisters.
Fill the rest of the vessel with smooth river rocks. Layer the rocks on top of the hardware mesh.
Leave a space around the opening of each fuel canister so you can light them.
