Creative Flame's Fire Tools

The performers of Creative Flame can employ over 30 different fire tools in their performances, including all industry standard apparatus, to several inventions unique to Creative Flame.
The nature, location & theme of the event, combined with the spcific discipline/skill set of the performer, will determine the actual fire tools used for each performance.

For daytime events, we offer daylit performances using flag streamers large colorful apparatus stiltwalking, and special fuel additives to better illuminate the flames.
For venues that do not allow fire, we also offer visually impressive & awe-inspiring LED/Blacklight performances.

Some of our most commonly used fire tools include:

CHINESE DEVIL STICKS: Over 2000 years old, the Chinese fire sticks consist of 3 flaming wands, ignited at both ends. The center stick can be tossed high in the air, and create amazing flame circles and fiery optical illusions resembling DNA spirals.
