EZ Torch, Orca cleaning

Hey there!I'm a pretty new silver smith! I have just started up a little work bench of my own and I bought the EZ torch. It has been working really well the last few months, but this week the flame has started to surge and sputter. Tonight I was just about to anneal a piece of silver and I went to light the torch, It made a fire ball and the flames fell back running down the handle, I turned off both knobs but the flame didn't go out until I blew it out! so after I was sure the flame was out I…See More

As you may know the next issue of MAGazine will focus on enamelling and we are looking for resources. So post any information on enamel suppliers, kiln sources, favorite books - anything at all that might be of use to anyone who loves enamel, whether then are just starting out in the journey, or whether they have been on the road for a while!

Hi Catherine,

Thanks for getting in touch. I am a beginner in enamelling, but I know it is a process that I will be doing a lot more of... As a start, I have attached a photo of two pieces from my second year enamelling project at ACAD, Spring 2010, working with Dee Fontans. If this might be of use I can also provide the artists statement etc.

The pieces are called "The Kipper: Pre- and Post-mortem". Materials are fine silver, copper, sterling and cloisonné enamel. Photography credit is myself/the artist. These items are from "Something For The Weekend", a range of men's pendant ties, possibly amuletic, in precious metals and gems. The Kipper tie is an homage to the 1960's English menswear designer, Michael Fish, and his reactionary designs to dull male fashion. He is credited with launching the "Peacock Revolution" and I have a great picture of David Bowie wearing a Kipper!

Best wishes,

Christine Pedersen
