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.

Magically, Walt

Thanks Walt. Does your friend make the ones Steven's is selling?

I don't think so, they are similar though, but I think nicer. I can send you a photo of mine if you'd like, it was custom with an imp face in relief on it. Tom prices by size and intricacy. Walt

Thank you for the advice Walt, perhaps I should leave this one for the few who are performing miracles with it already.

But who knows what the future holds someday...

regards,
M.I.

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.

I don't use it the entire routine. Props are moved back and forth from a Hobbs box. TT is stolen from box to provide a load for opposite hand.

Thanks for the insight RCP. I have been thinking much more about possible scenarios since your post. I wonder if a blood capsule stuck to the inside could be useful too as a load at some point(Is saying this type of thing ok in the public forum?).

If in doubt Jon, stop and head to the Crypt.

Thanks Roslyn, I think that is sound advice. I will go in the Crypt here in a bit and start a Lota thread for anyone who might be interested.

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. Just tell me what you wish for, friends. I love a challenge....

Lozey seems to have disappeared! No way to PM her either. I was going to suggest going here and contacting Tom:

I found a picture of one of Nine Dragon's Lota Pitchers (see below...never mind...it won't "take"). Oh well...I tried!

Hey Doug,

I managed to get hold of an original Tomich lota pot, in the plain design. Its a lovely prop. I am thinking of selling it though, but will make sure the guys here get first refusal if I do

I havent 'dissapeared', Im just occassionally loitering in the background. I had to turn off my PM message facility after I started to recieve hate messages, so sorry about that. If you post your email up here, we can chat that way

Lozey, hate messages? In the Café?? Hard to imagine. I cannot think of ANY reason someone would do that here. Did you report them? Glad you're OK. And, you were looking for a Lota, and you found one, and now you want to sell it? I guess I'm con-fooosed! Smile Tom at the link above is the guy I'm going to. I have to save some $$$, though... Smile

The 'looking for post' was a loooong time ago. Since then I have moved away from, magic. Its a lovely, lovely prop, but nowadays I don't want to look at props anymore. Too many bad memories when I see things like that on my shelf, and its a shame for me to consign it to the attic, when it deserves to be used

With regards to the messages, yes I reported it, probably better off not talked about publically. Like I said, post your email or email me on lauren@ravenmagic.co.uk

Tom made a lota jar for me with an Egyptian ankh inscribed. It provided five days of
water ( five pours) from Jacobs Well in my routine based on the geographical location of the well, which
exists even today. Tom's work is unusually beautiful. Superb !
