Question Hideous Firepit options

We inherited a firepit with our house that looks like a kid school project gone wrong.

It's 34" diameter and 9" above the concrete. The concrete has been excavated inside it. It's powered by mains gas, which goes into a simple circular distributor, with lava rocks on top.

What are my options for making it prettier? I was thinking maybe a high temperature cement around it? Or ledger stone - but with what sort of cement/adhesive.

Or knock it down and re-do it? Maybe a kit?

It doesn't get that much use, so don't want to spend a fortune.

I don't see any benefit in keeping the brick so I'd consider removing it be free to build back whatever you want.

It almost appears to be unfinished.
You could add decorative bricks around it......the red bricks appear to be either firebricks or re-purposed red bricks.

There are an unlimited number of gas fire pits available if you wanted a different look.
