Welcome to Illuminarium

Illuminarium’s managing director Edward Chiswell Jones has been involved in special effects for almost 20 years. He worked for Kimbolton Fireworks and BSTE until 2002. He left to work with the ambulance service but remained involved in creating fire performances and displays. He started collaborating with Kathryn Carey in 2004 and developing his own effects with technical consultant Aran Dasan. Following the unveiling of The Big Tea’se copper kettle fire sculpture, the brainchild of Kathryn Carey in 2009 and outgrowing freelance status, he left the NHS to return to blowing things up full time. In 2010 Illuminarium was incorporated as a limited company, with Edward and Kathryn acting as co-directors and Aran providing technical consultancy.  

We can now cater to all aspects of special effects for all occasions including live events, film and television as well as for art exhibitions, private parties and weddings.

We have many other effects available so please contact Managing and Technical Director, Edward Chiswell Jones to discuss your requirements on  07883042133.
