Fireworks Americana™ presents
by James LeGame
His fireworks had a style instantly recognizable to fellow makers. What was his secret? Was it the way he spiked his shells, the degree of tension with each draw of the string? Did he have a special knot that held the string’s tension better? What was that secret ingredient in his formulas? Or was it in the precision placement of every star? Whatever it was the looping symmetry of each burst coupled with shimmering trails of sparks was proof that as a maker he was a master and like a true master he always left his mark.
