About Jeff and the Bottle Magic
Jeff Scanlan, America’s sports magician since 1992, is also a master amongst the few Bottle Magic artists around the world. Challenging human logic, Jeff has been inserting decks of cards, tennis balls, padlocks and what-not objects into glass bottles through the necks creating a collection of mind baffling impossible bottles. Because the methods are so secretive, difficult and time consuming, it is estimated there’s only a dozen people in the world mastering this art form. Jeff is considered to be one of the very best.
Jeff is following the footsteps of Harry Eng, the Impossible Bottle master who passed away in 1996 taking most of his secrets away with him. Jeff puts creativity and countless hours into his Bottle Magic designs, gathering puzzled fans not only throughout the United States but worldwide in such countries as Australia, Austria, Germany, France, Japan, and England. His Bottle Magic has been featured in Linking Ring Magazine (the world's largest magic magazine) and other newspapers. Later this year Jeff's Bottle Magic will be featured in Games Magazine in USA as well as in the museum of The College of Magic in South Africa.
