Flaming Thor Helmut

Artist Statement: The helmet is a beautiful dense plastic replica of a Thor Helmet. The copper flame tubes are raised above the helmet so that there is no heat transfer from the tubes to the helmet. There is a simple flow control valve so you can set it to a small wicking flame or crank it up to really get some attention (3ft+).

I have been wearing a similar "fire hat" at Burningman for several years now. Given the response, I have decided to make a few more. It is an amazing way to get noticed, light your surroundings and catch yourself of fire. I can not suggest you wear it, I recommend you never wear it, as its dangerous!
