Hi there
Somebody posted here recently saying they had seen a lot of these items about for bizarrists, but I seem unable to find any of them! I live in the UK, can anyone help me out here and give the name of a possible supplier

Good luck with your search. I have seen them on-line, but that was some years ago. As an alternative, I have an e-Book in my Mini-Mysteries Section (on my site) called "Rice Bowls - Past and Present" which shows a new method for the Rice Bbowl (made from any pottery bowl - no gimmicked bowl) and it also describes how to use the principle to turn any pottery bowl or vase into a Lota Bowl. This frees you up to just finding a nice bowl you like in an antique shop or modern pottery shop, and then using the principles described to perform with it as a Lota Bowl. The advantage to the method is that each pour of liquid is the same amount (not less and less as with a mechanical bowl), and each pour can even be a different liquid, like milk, or beer, or coffee, etc. If you can't find what you are looking for, this might be a possible solution for you.

You definitely need to get in contact with Martin Duffy. Tell him I sent ya, I just got friended on Facebook. I am lusting after these myself because I have something I want to do.

I saw your ad in the Wanted section of Magic Week... Unfortunately, I have one but love it so much I can't let it go :(

I'd have to second the recommendation for Martin Duffy's Lota Pot. It's an amazing piece of artwork and gets a really good reaction at the end when I do a version of the Dream Jar.

I wrap it in a piece of "old" sackcloth wrapped in aged string and when I open it up, you get a real sense of antiquity with it.

I scrimped and saved to get this beauty from http://www.martinbreese.com/trickpages/lota.htm - £55 well worth it in my opinion. I keep mine on display with some of my other "props" as it's a beauty.

I've attached a pic of my version - similar to the one in the web page.

Cheers,
Matt

Aye Curator - lippincott box, coins, lota pot - they're all there. I don't usually use the Jap coin for the pot though - it's quite large and can get wedged in there occasionally thus denting the performance.

I use a nice brass bowl on a wooden stand to pour the water into (my car boot sale bargain for £1.50!!!!), it's usually full of burnt billets / envelopes before I do this though.

Is that a cork lid you have there also?

Can't think what the dragon would be used for though - or is that for effect? :) :)
Message: Posted by: The Curator (Jul 27, 2009 12:43PM)
No, the Dragon is just an automaton from my collection.
The drawing was made by my friend Eric (to which the story is dedicated)
I use a old cork lid and the lota pot is wrapped in a very old large lady's purse (not on the photo).

I also have the Martin Duffy Lota Pot and like it a lot. I use it for a different routine but would also like to get a lippincott box for the obvious reason. Any recommendations and sources from those who have one? I notice the ones in your pictures are quite different.

Sorry to distract your thread with this question lozey :)

Great price and swift delivery to boot.

Oh, but I love that dragon, Curator! It is very dream-like -- almost like something from Mirror Mask.

Regarding the Lippincott box, Paul Diamond has one for sale every once-in-a-while. I have two; each I use in a separate routine. I had no idea they were hard to find.

I do wish I had a Duffy lota.

Ok, I received mine today! Mine isn't as striking as the one in the photo above, but I am happy with my purchase nonetheless. Took awhile for them to be made but once the Martin Breese company got their stock it was shipped immediately and arrived quick. Works like a charm and the supplied routines are wonderful. I will be using mine for the purpose of telling some local Native American history and the first routine gave me great ideas to pull from. I can't wait to put it into action this summer.

he’s do custom work with design, style, color, size.

His Lota inspired one of my favorite presentations,

Hi all, I have never owned or used a lota pot/jar in performances, but they do seem like a wonderful piece to add to my routines.

Please forgive me if you find this question too intrusive, but I would just like to know if a lota pot/jar can be examined by a spectator? without of course tipping its innner workings etc.

I know the saying, don't run when your not being chased. and while I certainly wont ask spectators to examine it or hand it out to them for inspection, I might be doing an intimate small group or parlour show, and I just like to know if something can be examined or not, should that happen.

for stage this wouldnt be an issue of course.

Thank you kindly for answering my question anyhow. regards,

Yes, that is its intended use I suppose but why limit it to just that? Why not start out with a completely dry vessel full of bones? Produce some Egyptian coins and perhaps the sands of the Nile and then end with the Pharaohs blood for grins?

OR, my shamanistic friend some bones and feathers, beads and a drink of mescal for each guest?

I have a number of them. The Martin Duffy is the best of the off the shelf ones. Indiana is certainly good if you know what you are looking for. Stevens ME has an interesting new one, more of a pitcher design.

If you can find a good local potter and know what you are looking for that's the best option. A cheap plastic one and some paint can work.......

Gary, I have two that are identical. The first starts out with an eagle’s feather, produces bones, beads, sands and eventually blood. The feather moves from the pain of the Apache blood and tears. A switch and we toast their lives with mescal produced from apparently the same earthen vessel that earlier had produced blood

RCP Great posts, ideas, advice!

My two-cents, the Lota is a fantastic classic prop, and can be used for a large stage, parlor, even close-up with a little careful handling and some audience control.

They are made in a huge array of materials, sizes, shapes. Tom’s (see my earlier post) can be almost anything. I know he stocks the mugs, and small/large vases.

Your imagination sets the limits, as RPC says. This is an “old” prop that not too many are using these days, so it can set you apart.

Then again, done in a rote, boring way, without creativity, it can be a dud too.

I tried out my clay lota with my kids that I teach today. Even without fleshing out much of a story I got some great reactions from the kids and the two adults in the room. Kind of funny actually. I can't wait to actually put together a more meaningful/impactful story for what I plan to do this summer and get a little creative to really bring this up a notch and see the reactions then. Definitely lends itself well to storytelling magic.

Thanks for the ideas by the way RCP. Has me thinking a bit more about what can be done. I would be curious to know how you comfortably use the TT with your lota.

Hello fellow Magi, Yes, the Stevens Magic Emporium has had me make several of the blue pitchers for them specifically. The older, worn, look like Martin has... yes, I can make that as well. Martin and I have talked, we are friends. If you are in the UK..... get it from Martin and save the shipping overseas. If you are in the USA..... just write or call and ask me. I am making some special pots now. Old, rustic pots are easily done as well. I use one of my mugs in an 1850's setting of colonial Kentucky.... telling my story of Squire Boone.

You cant really scrub out the inside workings of a lota pot (although you could try a rinse out with Milton) so its not particularly safe, saying that I do drink from it in my sideshow routine (but I also eat a lightbulb and razorblades, so I consider the risk negligable)

@ Dougini...... my lotas, mugs, pitchers, and vases are all glazed inside AND in the chamber as well. Safe to drink out of? I would recommend.... water, tea, perhaps whiskey... but stay away from acid liquids like orange juice, soft drinks, or any dairy product.... as they may sour. I have used mine for years and drink the water from it..... I have made vases, roman double handled vases, mugs, steins, viking horns, pitchers and teacups into lotas. I love to make unique one of a kind pieces to fit a person's needs.
@ Cunningham...... nope, no instructions for potters. I am an artist (watercolors) and potter as well as a magician so I am very familiar with what has to be done to make them. My own pottery professor told me that a potter could NOT make the pot as I make it...... bingo, a challenge...... and now I have my own method that works great.

From the post above the new game is:

Seems like he's made everything but an ostrich egg into a Lota Vase…
can we find a bizarre story/project that will send him back to the drawing board?

I've seen (and owned) his magnificent pottery, it is art, not just craft.

Oh, and if anyone does the Benson Bowl routine.... Tom makes a version with a pottery Toad House and little toad sponges, cute and very story worthy.

The glazing of the pot on the inside prevents the liquid from seeping through the microscopic pores in the clay, even though it has gone through vitrification in the firing. The pot does NOT have to be glazed on the outside......
