Young artists Tobias and Sharay are part of the Fuego Youth Leadership Program at The Crucible in Oakland. After being mentored by adult artists, Fuego youth leaders instruct their peers in industrial arts like welding and glass flameworking. With an emphasis on creativity, self-expression and safety, The Crucible has found a great way to play with fire!
