I just received this item today. I'm amazed at the quality. I would have waited twice as long for it and appreciate your quick responses for my concerns of it being lost. Pleasure doing business with you. I was planning on doing something for a group of Cherokee Indians that I met last year at the carnival. I showed them some tricks before their "storytelling session". They asked me if I could sit down with them in the middle of a circle and perform something for their storytelling. I was embarrassed to meet such high standards with my "tricks" so I reluctantly declined...but I would NOT give up. "Next year," I thought, "I'll be ready so this won't ever happen to me again." The hunt was on. What "trick" was I going to do? Whatever it was it couldn't look like a silly trick. It had to have meaning and convey a message of healing. It would have to meet the highest standards of storytelling of authenticity, sincerity, and morality. Enter "The Lota Bowl" from Martin Breese. Now I can sit down among the tribe and tell them a story with the confidence this high quality product brings for the next year's carnival. I can't wait! Thank you for helping me to be a better magician.

This is an amazing little Ceramic Lota Pot made by
hand by a potter. It is a little work of art and once filled it
can pour the most amazing amount of water or fluid of your choice.
I am constantly knocked back by the number of times that I can
seemingly empty the vase by turning it upside down and then pouring
out some water and then again and again and again. I
usually manage to get at least seven separate loads of water from the
beautiful pot,. Martin Duffy has provided the instructions and
it comes with two brilliant routines and the first is by the famous
bizarre magician, Mary Tomich and the second is by Christian Chelman. They
are both fantastic.
Martin Duffy had the pot ready he wrote to me and he said that he had
used a pot like this that he got from Mary Tomich in the USA and he used
it in every Environmental Magic show that he has done for the last 4
years. He also used the Lota Pot to open eleven school shows that
he did in a week for South Tyneside International Week. I
must point out that Martin Duffy obtained permission from Mary Tomich to
actually have the pots made by a British potter and he has appointed me
as the sole person to offer them for sale.
He uses Mary Tomich's routine which is called the Shaman's Vision
and he also uses the Christian Chelman routine which is really a
fantastic bit of story telling about a pot and money that was kept in
the pot and then suddenly water appears etc etc.
This is really a wonderful prop and half a dozen magic friends who
have seen the Lota Pot in action have been incredibly impressed.
So there you have it. The pot is quite small as can be seen from
the photograph and it will nestle very neatly in your outstretched palm.
Best item I have stocked for a while.
