Ragnarok Fire Supplies is a dynamic duo comprised of Nathanael England and Remedy Howard. Nathanael does most of the designing, crafting, and communications, and Remedy does most of the product testing.

 

Ragnarok Fire Supplies was officially formed in 2010, though we've been crafting fire toys since  2008. The name came about from the fact that we're both a couple of geeks that love mythology and the post-apocalyptic genre, such as Mad Max, The Road, Tank Girl, etc. For those not in the know, Ragnarok ("The Doom of the Gods") is the Norse End Times, consisting of battles between the gods, various natural disasters, the scorching of the earth (all of the nine realms, for that matter) by the flaming sword of Surt (leader of the fire giants), and the subsequent submersion of the world in water, followed by the eventual repopulation and regrowth of the world.

 

Yeah... geeks.

 

What else do we do? Collectively, we also form The Switchblade Sideshow, performing variety acts steeped in circus sideshow tradition. Aside from the expected fire performance, we also do acts such as straitjacket escape, human pincushion, hula hooping while STANDING on a bed of nails, bed of swords, human chopping block, whip acts, belly dance, animal traps, and much more.

Nathanael also works as a photographer, and is slowly but surely rephotographing all of our inventory. You can see his ACTUAL photography at www.oneirosimaging.com. He loves reading, playing chess, welding and sculpting, and according to Remedy, listens to too much music in minor keys.

Remedy also works as a raw vegan chef, and is a practicing ATS (American Tribal Style) belly dancer in Kamala Chaand Dance Company. She started her belly dance roots in cabaret (which really wasn't her thing) and tribal fusion (which she loved). ATS is her new passion, along with making art and music, crochet, and being generally awesome. Remedy is also an attuned reiki master and tarot reader, which you can find out more about at Inverted Forest Reiki & Tarot.

Remedy and Nathanael live with an old, grumpy dog named Jazz. Jazz is an American Dingo (also known as a Carolina Dog) mix, and was a rescue dog. Jazz likes cheese, peanut butter, and climbing into our bed when we're not around. She dislikes loud noises and delivery people.
