The first thing I think you should know about David and Rachel is that they're real live fire performers! I wish I had a video to show you because they’re absolutely amazing. David designs and then makes all their fire props including but not limited to: fire poi, fire juggling balls, fire wands and fire staffs of all shapes and sizes. I’ve heard stories about a fire tornado machine but I don't think it's ready yet.
He also designs and makes his own costumes. You should see the pants he made to fit over his stilts!
When he’s not lighting his body and other things on fire, he spends a lot of time working with glass (melting it) and metal (bending it). He's something of a chainmail expert specializing in jewelry, clothing and fire poi ropes.
His most recent endeavor is wire wrapped pendants. He scours stores to find quality stones, minerals and fossils which he turns into works of art:
I’m constantly amazed at the things he can do with wire, a pair of pliers and his two hands. In case it's not already obvious...I'm just so incredibly proud of my little brother.
