The Eccentricks material is also available in a book (if you prefer) by the same title from Charlie Frye's web site.


Man, I am a fan.

I do a simple routine that's very similar to a fellow Andy Fields who can be seen on Youtube, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1TpMOk1rRXQ. There's a guy in florida who sells the cheap sets on Ebay, but he really works them up and did a very fine job for me. In fact, I'm asking him to come up with a larger set. I've got to say that a lot of people know the ball and vase but with some very simple sleights (color changes largely) I really 'wow' people who though they knew what's going on. Take a look at the link above and you'll see what I mean.

I did Curtis's ideas as shown in the recent magazine for the magic club last night and added a bounce/ no bounce ball to it and it was all a lot of fun to do.

Marty, b/nb balls are a great idea. And on hard surfaces, the little black plastic ball that comes with the set bounces like crazy, anyway. Hmm, I might not be done with this routine yet.

I agree that Mike Gallo has a very nice routine with a ball & vase where at the end he switches in a large different colored ball...nice touch..

Duraty's routine with liquid finishhas finally been published by Lybrary.com. I love the book so much that I translated it in English at no charge. So I'm slanted but here is Roy W. Eidem's comment on the book that he purchased.

"I recently got back from an extended road trip. I took with me as my companion to read Duraty's "Irresistible Close Up Magic." What an extremely delightful collection and cornucopia of real world magic gleaned from decades of experience! It is difficult to pick a favorite: rings, coins, bills, balls, nuts & bolts, ropes, Okito box, match box, glasses, business cards, tiny light bulbs, and more. No cards, no fillers. Every magician will happily learn more about the art they love by reading this wonderful book!"

I recommend Tarbell's ball and vase routine from vol 8 as well. It's a very nice presentation.

I have been tempted to buy or make an ungimmicked version so it can be inspected before the trick. I am not sure it is worth it to me though. Still it would be fun to show it to certain smarties.

It is a commonly sold item in toy stores or even stores like "Five and Below". Still I have toyed with the idea of a routine like Charlie Frye's, it can be entertaining and even some surprising magical moments even if they know how it works.

One of the best routines that I have found is by Doug Gorman called the Stones of Tutankhamun with the props made by Jim Riser. Only 20 sets were manufactured (I think) and I have #6 (WOOHOO). I'm not sure if Doug ever published the routine without buying the props -- they were sold as a complete set. You can easily contact Doug about the routine and he will respond within a day and on Jim Risers website he has a video of the routine - Top Notch. With Doug's blessing, you could use other Ball Vase sets with a paint job and a few other items, to perform the routine.

When I started to do a ballvase Routine, I wanted to have the spectators examine the Vase. Hand out the Vase and the ball (without the lid + Gimmick). Take it back, put the lid on it, then as you would have forgotten just Hand the lid as well for examination.

But nowadays I do ballvase only without the Gimmick. Then you can have them examine it all the way.

The late great card expert, Ed Marlo, published a fantastic Ball and Vase routine using the Adam's Magic set. I believe it was in The New Tops Magazine by Abbott's back in the 1970's. Great full close-up routine.

It's also in ARCADE DREAMS/Marlo Without Cards, a beautiful (seldom mentioned) hardbound book by Ed Marlo & Jon Racherbaumer, circa late 1990's.

That same routine was just (re)published in the Nov-Dec double issue of Genii.

Also, Jim Riser was making sets for the Mike Gallo routine (ungimmicked), although I don't know where that routine is published.

Arcade Dreams rocks. It addresses some "ghetto magic" tricks like the Ball Vase, Magic Frame, and even the Snapper with fresh ways of looking and performing these trite props. Just wonderful thinking, especially since so many people are familiar with these magic set staples.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.
