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

Interview with Catherine Crowe

MAG: What led you down this career path? Was there a recognizable ' aha' moment in your life?



CC: Very definitely. It came when I first travelled back to Ireland - my father's native land. When Dad came to Canada, after the 2nd world war it was not a place friendly to the Irish. People forget how much prejudice there was. Lots of job listings had a codicil "Irish need not apply". So he worked hard to get rid of his Irish accent and culture in order… Continue
