The world of fireworks has its own language and many refer to ‘shells’ which is the generic name for any type of spherical fireworks that has to be fired from a mortar, which essentially acts as a cannon, firing the massive shells into the night sky.

These ‘shells’ form a large part of the majority of professional displays, typically the massive ‘fireball’ effects seen around New Year's Eve around the Capital cities of the World. They vary in size between 2” and 36” but there have been some up to 48” in diameter.

Each year in Japan, they hold a massive festival of fireworks which consists mainly of huge shells which reach upwards of 2500ft and absolutely fill the sky
