When the Fire by Riz web site launched in early 2002 the pryo world was changed forever by the introduction of quality fire tools made by trained machinist, fabricators, and professional pryros. With their artistic flare backed by years of experience they quickly became known for their innovative style and developed a reputation for high quality equipment. Since then, Fire by Riz has become the world leader of fire tools for professional performers and novices alike looking for superior professional grade fire tools.
Some of our clients include Cirque du Soleil, Ringling Bros. Bindlestiff Family Circus, Chris Camp (former Guinness Book world record holder for fastest whip), Adam Winrich (current Guinness Book world record holder for fastest whip), Miami Performing Arts Center, Hip Expression Belly Dance, Troupe Unmata and Hot Pot Studios, Fat Chance Belly Dance, Cirque de Flambe, Temple of Poi and many others we could list but, then we wouldn’t have room on the site for all the cool stuff and pictures.
A letter from the man himself –
Dear fellow fire enthusiasts,
In this day and age of business’s lacking integrity, corporate takeovers, and “the dollar is the bottom line” mentality I sometimes wonder how we made it this far! We’ve come a long way from my humble beginnings in my garage. I couldn’t have made it without the knowledge, support and work of employees past and present and of course to you my loyal customers. I would like to say thank you for your continued support and confidence. Even though Fire by Riz is now a corporation, don’t worry we will never lose our focus. We will always keep our small business, the customer is what counts philosophy. We are part of a community of fire enthusiasts and will continue to encourage and foster the community by giving our personal touch to every order. We look forward to dancing with you, sharing dust on the playa, sharing fire stories or what ever else brings us together in the flame.
Randy “Riz” Holmes
