Flame On!


When my friend Paul Tatum wrote me to talk about his latest work in acrylic casting, I knew I had the next blog post. Today's pic is one of the first examples of his new "flames" technique, where he is casting unique acrylic stem rods with classic hot rod-style fire decor. One can see this pipe and another, similar flame-stemmed piece (plus plenty of other stuff) in his online catalog. I should point out that this is not painted on nor any sort of decal - The flame pattern is solid acrylic cast as part of the stem rod. Somehow I think this would look fantastic on a smooth, solid-black pipe.
