Ball Vase (Mesquite) by Richard Spencer(c. 2018) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
The Ball Vase was first described over 250 years ago in Dean’s The Whole Art of Legerdemain (1763). The Ball Vase is probably one of the most common effects in every Children’s Magic Set and for this reason it quickly gets ignored because we’ve all seen them before.
However, when you pick up a Ball Vase from Richard Spencer everything changes. These beauties are breathtaking and look and work flawlessly! As much as I love the work created by my friend Kent Bergmann at 3D Magic Works you’re never going to compete with the almost primal attraction many of us older guys have to real wood. The touch, weight and smell just trigger something that synthetic materials can’t – solid wood just feels right (although I will say Kent is getting closer on each release!).
These Ball Vases in Mesquite are at a price point that you don’t need to break the bank to purchase one. However, you have to ask yourself when you see something this beautiful how long will it be before you are stampeding for one of these bad boys? I don’t think it will be very long at all.
Effect: Open the vase and remove the ball from inside the vase. Place the ball into your pocket. Make a magic gesture, take the lid off the vase- the ball is back inside the vase! Put the lid back on, make another gesture, take the lid off- the ball has vanished again! It’s back in your pocket!
You can repeat this routine over and over. There is no resetting necessary. No sleight of hand required!
