I knew when I purchased my first Ball Vase from Richard Spencer’s that it would not be long before I purchased one of these. I was surprised I held out for a whole year 🙂
Richard has made this beautiful set from the exotic hardwood Monkey Pod. Having the ability to transpose colors between vases definitely adds an extra dimension when it comes to creating an interesting and entertaining routine. These work perfectly and even without any sleights you can create some great magic.
The gimmicks are very solid and blend seamlessly into the vase. There is nothing to see even close-up and it is very easy to forget if you are looking at the real ball or the gimmick.
The effort involved to create these and the subsequent price, means they are clearly aimed at the high-end collector and you will not be disappointed with the quality. Also you will be pleasantly surprised that with very little effort you have an effect that will look classy and be amazing too!
These are really beautiful, great job Richard!
Effect: Stunningly beautiful. Instantly recognizable to those familiar with the art. Featuring exquisite quality craftsmanship the likes of which very few can obtain. This is the definition of unique personified! Two beautifully hand-turned matching pill vases one of which houses a blue ball and the other one housed a red ball. The magician make a magical pass and then opens the top of the vase that previously housed the black ball, but now magically house the red ball! Can this be true? The color-change itself is impressive but it doesn’t stop there. The next vase that previously housed the red ball, is slowly opened and sure enough the blue ball now rests inside.
Very likely this is something most have never seen before and will not see again after production stops on these. Each one of these are exceptionally limited and crafted by Richard Spencer. This set also comes with the beautiful glass dome whose base includes rounded out sections for the two vases and two balls to rest securely on. The glass dome really add a boutique sensation to the piece as well as keeping it dust-free and secure. Here is your chance to own a jewel that any magician would dream for.
