About Me

My name is James Mills.

The first time I ever saw someone behind the torch I knew I had to learn this wonderful artform for myself. I bought my first torch in April of 2005, a Carlisle CC and started to teach myself the basics with the help of the wonderful people in the online communities (TheGLDG), and also some local people I met that helped me here and there.

Being mainly self taught has made experimenting with new ideas difficult at times. Maybe because I'm like my son, "I saw it on TV, I could do that". Unfortunately thats not how it works, but this has forced me to study other artists work and experiment with similar designs to broaden my knowledge even further.

I currently work on a GTT Mirage and would love to someday upgrade to something bigger like a GTT Kobuki or a GT Cobra. Not sure what I would do with a torch that big, but bigger is better right?
