9 November 2006Up in Flames:The Art of Flame Painting
Author: Tim Phelps & 'Yosemite' Sam Radoff
Flame painting first lit up the hot rod world more than 50 years ago-and its still burning strong.
At the heart of the art are a handful of innovators who have pushed the tradition to ever-greater heights over the past half-century-and these are the artists profiled in this book. Up in Flames introduces readers to the flame painters who best represent the talent and inspiration that give this particular art form its power, and whose stories best illustrate the evolution of the flame job. Each profile features full-color illustrations, many examples of an artists range, and the painters own thoughts on style, career, and craft-all framed by an introduction that traces the flame job from its infancy to todays modern techniques and designs.

Radoff Originals, the small banner at the top right corner, is a site for those whose tastes run to the finer things in life. This is my passion. Here you will find fine sculpture, wall art, and functional sculpture, such as coffee tables. Many pieces are for sale, but there is an archive of some of my past work as well.

Radoff Originals is live, as of 7 November 2004
Feel free to look around.
