Bottle Magic, better known as Impossible Bottles, is the art of placing decks of cards and other objects into ordinary glass bottles through the neck. The bottles are not heated, cooled, cut or formed around the object. In fact, the bottles are not manipulated in any way.
The methods used are secret, difficult and time-consuming. There are only about twelve people living today who have mastered the art form. Jeff Scanlan is one of those twelve people. He is a perfectionist who puts both creativity and countless hours into his Impossible Bottles. We think that when you see them, you’ll agree.
Jeff’s artistry has garnered him clients throughout the United States and worldwide. His bottles are collected in Australia, Austria, Germany, France, Japan, England and beyond. Every bottle is individually made and proudly signed for authenticity.
"Jeff, I have several of your bottles but having my 654 Club deck in the wine bottle is my absolute favorite. I keep it in my office and see it everyday. Your bottles are true works of art. You haven't heard the last from me. I'll be having more made soon. Your bottles are perfect gifts for my magic friends." Bill Malone, Professional Magician Henderson, NV
"We recently commissioned Jeff to make 13 of his "impossible bottles" for some of our best clients. The problem was that I needed them fast. The job was nearly as impossible as the bottles themselves but Jeff pulled it off with ease. He is easy to work with and his art is amazing. The reactions the bottles get is priceless and as a gift they make a lasting impression. We highly recommend Jeff and has unique art to anyone". Jimmy Vee & Travis Miller Founders, Gravitational Marketing Orlando, FL
"After stumbling upon and falling in love with impossible bottles, I was lucky enough to find my way to your website. Your communication is amazingly fast, my first bottle was perfect quality and execution and is now the talk of the office. I can't wait to expand my bottle collection and use them as unforgettable gifts. Thanks Jeff!" Michael Mothner, President & CEO Wpromote El Segundo, CARead More
