The art of creating a logo, writing or pictures in fireworks
Ghengis fireworks can provide lancework for all occasions across the UK!
What is lancework?
Lancework is fireworks that depict signs, symbols or logos, or that spell out names and messages. And is built on a framework using small specially designed fireworks called lances.
What is a lance?
Lances are individual small fireworks that make up the pixels in a set-piece. And usually are about the size of a chalk stick, they contain a solid tube of firework composition. Finally, each lance is hand pressed and filled to burn for approximately sixty seconds.
Design, Build and Usage
Each and every piece is designed to your specification and then carefully handmade. As a guide, we suggest that all designs need to be large for visibility. Also please your design will be fairly fragile.
When you receive your lancework it must be unpacked carefully, and will have to be attached to two or more stout posts – nails or cable ties will do. Next, there is a single fuse that is used to light and the ignition will spread across the lances, revealing the image as the lances catch alight. And will burn for about a minute before fading.
Most users, of course, have other fireworks at the same time to emphasise the message.
A Standard design uses lettering about 30cm / 12″ high, Estimate on a cost of £25 per letter + VAT + £25 delivery.
