The Catherine Wheel is a type of fireworks which is made by using a powder filled thin tube which is spiralled around which when lit rotates and emits effects.
Here at Epic we hold a large variety which range in price from under £3 to under £15.
The Colourful Wheel from Fireworks International is long-lasting at 1 ½ minutes duration and it may be small and quiet but the testimonials speak for themselves:
Anthony Perkins said:
‘This wheel may look small and not seem much, BUT it is one of the nicest, quietest and long-lasting, most charming of fireworks – definitely would buy again!’
With rich and brilliant colour, changing from red to gold to green it is truly beautiful and effective in any fireworks display.
Onto our biggest and best-selling wheel – The Fiery Eye Wheel from Brothers Fireworks which at just under £15 for a minute and 20 seconds of beautiful effects – again reviewed by Anthony:
‘This is a stunning piece: very bright gold sparks combined with a beautiful blue flame in the centre – beautiful’
As the wheel gets faster it looks like a huge glowing globe which has a number of flashing effects.
The Catherine Wheel has quite a macabre history being named after the Breaking Wheel, which was used to torture and kill St Catherine. Check it out: http://epicfireworks.com/blog/2010/02/instrument-of-torture/
