Ceramic takes more fuel than Kevlar so the flame is bigger and burnouts are bigger. And due to more fuel, burn time is also longer. Remember that ceramic rope is a bit more fragile than Kevlar. It’s not recommended to drop it too often, but otherwise it is durable. Ceramic fiber textiles are durable, high temperature to 1260°C (2300°F).
Preparing ceramic wicks for first use: The important thing to remember with ceramic wicks is to burn once before spinning. Just soak with fuel and allow full burn without spinning. After that ceramic wicks become strong and are ready for use.
Fire Safety Tips
Practicing fire flow art requires preparation and confidence. Most importantly, wear tighter-fitting clothes to prevent injury and never burn alone! Please review the Home of Poi Fire Safety Guidelines for detailed information on fuels, safety procedures and basic first aid for burns.
Spinning fire in public spaces can be dangerous, and you are responsible for any and all damage to property and injury to yourself and others. The North American Fire Arts Association has resources for fire artists including safety, insurance and guidelines for obtaining fire permits.
