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

Heather Rathbun's Page

I create wearable objects that are inspired by and utilize the interactive qualities jewellery evokes. My designs often have separate functions, aside from being wearable, with the incorporation of kinetic and / or manipulative elements. My background in photography also plays a strong influence in my designs. Within some works, I have integrated three-dimensional photography in both stereoscopic and anaglyphic form using both found imagery and my own.
