Completely unintentional, but this post has a lot of hot fire in common with my last post - I wasn't exaggerating when I said that I like a good flame! This is an authentic, work-in-progress image of an undeniably attractive goldsmithing model, wielding a large torch with a flame hot enough to melt metal. Hot enough to melt sterling silver for lost wax casting, to be precise. Casting is very fun, hot, hands-on work, and I'm so fortunate that I get to do it all on my own AND in-house. I'm one lucky maker you guys!
