A flame effect device can be most generally defined as a fire-producing machine where the fuel supply is pumped, conveyed, switched, or otherwise manipulated in some way.

For many years, I've been making some of the world's smallest flame effects, and attaching them directly to trained performers. I've worked with many creative groups, including The Nekyia, Copper Lantern Fire Theatre, and The Crucible. This has afforded the opportunity to use fire in all manner of unexpected ways, from breakdancing to ballet.
