Where Objects in a Bottle Become Impossible Pieces of Art

Testimonials

Here’s what my many
happy purchasers have to say:

“Jeff, These amazing bottles continue to astound me and my friends who see them. “How does he do that?” is something I hear all the time. I don’t know how you do it and don’t need to as they bring me great delight.”

Larry Winget, Television personality and author of 6 NYT/WSJ bestsellers.

“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”.

“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!”

“Jeff, Your Bottle Magic ‘Decked’ bottle (pack of cards in a bottle) is truly amazing. Not only a visual stunner, but a magical piece of art that has taken a place of honor in my office.
I plan to add to my collection and suggest them to my friends as well.”

Richard Holland, President

“Jeff, I just received my special Edition “Olympic” bottle (#4 of 10). All I can say is that it is a work of art and truly amazing!”

Mark Kiyabu, Magician & Owner of Kiyado Martial Arts

“Jeff, I was astonished when I first saw a photograph of an Impossible Bottle, and I knew right away that I wanted to find one. Luckily I came across your website. You were a real pleasure to work with. You filled my order promptly and I appreciated the way you kept me informed every step of the process. Of course, the “Cork Screwed Up” bottle itself is absolutely amazing. Thank you.”

Wesley Phoa, M.D.
Los Angeles, CA

“Jeff, I’ve ordered two bottles (so far!) from you and they are both collectors’ items! After my first order, I was pleasantly surprised to receive a personal email from you within a day confirming my order and explaining how long it would take for you to create my bottle. I did not know each bottle was made to order! I received both my bottles ahead of schedule, and they are true artwork! I keep them on the reception desk in my office, and we get comments on them many times every day. Sometimes I just stare at them and wonder . . .”

Mark Hoffrichter, DDS
Frederick, MD

“Jeff you are the ‘Impossible Bottle Man’. I love the bottle you made for me. Although expensive, no puzzle collection is complete without at least one of them. When my non-puzzle friends/family come over, invariably, they are drawn to it. Everybody has a theory about how the deck of cards got inside but then there’s the wood stopper with a cross pin wedged shut! Simply amazing!”

Tom Cutrofello, Mechanical Puzzle Correspondent
Games Magazine

“Jeff, The bottle you created for my client arrived today safe and sound. Thanks again for the quick turnaround. It is really perfect and a true work of art. My client, who is retiring, will have one more magical moment from me to ponder.

I will certainly spread the word of you and your Bottle Magic bottles.”

Seth Kramer

“Jeff has no equal today with this art form. His Impossible Bottles are technical and artistic masterpieces.”

Gary Foshee,

“Jeff, your Bottle Magic bottle has become the talk of my bar. Not only is the bottle artistic and entertaining, it significantly challenges the mind to understand your secret. Even after hours of thought, I still don’t know how you got those items inside that tequila bottle!”

Rob Garrison
Owner, Depot Nuevo Restaurant
Wilmette, IL

“Jeff,

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to tell you that the bottle you made for me was astonishing!!!  Who would have thought it would be possible to stick my marking gauge in a bottle, through a sealed deck of cards, locked in place, suspended in the bottle by a clasped chain with a mahogany stopper that has a cross member that locks the cork stopper tightly in place.  There is no way possible to get items in or out.   If I didn’t know better I would say that is impossible, but with you it is truly “magical”.  As the director of the largest woodworking school in the world, I have made it my job to find the best craftsman of modern time.  I did a lot of research before I contacted you, with everyone pointing to you as the best.  Well they were right, no questions end of story.  You have a very special gift—Keep up the GREAT work. Thanks a million.”

“Jeff, I just received my “Deck Merlot” bottle yesterday. All I can say is ‘How do you do it’? It looks AMAZING! Your attention to detail is incredible and your service was outstanding. Thank you so much for your wonderful service. I will treasure this bottle.”

Kazuki Isono,

“Hi Jeff,

Just to let you know that the “Cork Screw in Wine bottle” arrived safely this morning. It’s beautiful! Thank you for your efforts and for the extremely efficient personal service. It really is a work of art. Brilliant!!”

Helen Morris-Brown

“One of Jeff’s impossible bottles is a perfect unique gift for someone special. This is not a gift that will be ever “hidden away,” “returned,” or “forgotten” once the wrapping paper is carried away. This is a gift, supplying endless joy and wonderment, that will be cherished and proudly displayed for years and years.  For me, Jeff placed a full deck of cards inside a bottle with a special personalized inscription for a dear friend. When it arrived, it was so good, that I was tortured that I actually had to give it away! The only way out of this dilemma was to order a second of Jeff’s fantastic bottles — one to give away, and one to keep for myself!”

Al Seckel
Malibu, CA

“Jeff,

I received my deck of cards in the bottle the other day and I have to say it is quite impressive! It barely fits inside the bottle which leads you to wonder how you got it there with all the cards and the wrapper and seal intact. I have shown it to many friends and they are equally amazed. I think that this will be the first of many that I will purchase from you for my collection. Thanks for the Great Job and keep up the good work.”

“Jeff, The bottles sit on my desk and they look terrific.  I am very pleased with both of them, in terms of appearance as well the speed with which you fulfilled my order.  I am sure that I will order more of these from you!”

Johan Bergendahl
London, UK

“Jeff, I just walked in to find your package. Obviously, I quickly opened it and WOW! The bottles look fantastic!!! You truly are amazing with respect to creating these glass wonders! Thank you VERY much for your timeliness too. It really means a lot these days to receive such excellent customer service and I appreciate all your “magical” and inspirational efforts.”

Michael Richman

“Jeff: I can’t say enough good things about the quality and workmanship of your remarkable bottles. My “Scanlan Bottle” has become a focal point within my office. Without fail, visitors are drawn to the bottle with both fascination and amazement.”

Eric Wolf
Reston, VA

“Jeff created a wonderful, customized escape-themed bottle for our 20th anniversary.  Complete with locked padlock, miniature handcuffs, and of course the deck of cards!  This conversation piece is displayed upon our bookcase, where it always generates discussion with our guests!  Thank you Jeff for your outstanding work of art!”

“Jeff is following in the footsteps of miracle-maker Harry Eng. His productions are puzzles without words, without setups, without instructions. Just look at one of his impossible objects and try to explain how he did it!”

Scot Morris,
Henderson, NV

“We don’t like to believe something is impossible. Impossible bottles are a fascinating paradox because they appear to be possible at the same time they appear to be impossible. My delight with your bottles, however, is those subtle touches that won’t let you sleep at night.”

William Kolb
Edgewater, MD

“Jeff, I’m really impressed with the Gallon Jug 1.0 I recently purchased from you. This elaborate and skillfully crafted conundrum, in the style of the late Harry Eng’s “impossible” objects, has proven to be a source of both astonishment and admiration. You have proved that magic is more than mere illusion; it is reality that one can personally experience in your awesome artworks!”

Jim Moor, Math Teacher
Chicago, IL

“In Alice in Wonderland, the Red Queen states that “sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” Jeff Scanlan’s astonishing bottles provide the opportunity to bask in impossible things all the time!”

Max Maven, Magician
Hollywood, CA

“Jeff, I recently bought your Baseball in Small Salsa Jar. I just wanted to let you know that I was so impressed with the workmanship (How DID you get that baseball into that small bottle with NO scuff marks?) and your service that I decided to buy another Baseball in Small Salsa Jar plus some of your other bottles. Thanks so much!”

Newton Fong

“Jeff your Deck in Crystal Decanter bottle is an elegant, mind-boggling puzzle reminiscent of the best in-bottle enigmas.”

Phil Willmarth

“You have added new Impossible Bottle creations to Harry Eng’s legendary legacy!”

Jerry Slocum
Beverly Hills, CA

“Jeff – Harry Eng bottles are both rare and dangerous to ship (often containing suspended large bolts in glass), so I got your Gallon Jug 1.0 bottle. I no longer feel any need to “upgrade” to an Eng (and have turned down a couple substandard overpriced simple Eng bottles). I get the complete “WOW!” factor from viewers already with your bottle. Yours are the real deal & you’re a pleasure to deal with.”

Donald Burke, MD
Long Beach, CA

“Jeff your expertise at placing objects into a bottle continues to baffle me. You obviously have some great skills at your disposal. I was surprised, and appreciated the fact that you called me just to make sure my bottle order arrived in good condition. Thanks.”

Ron Berlier
Galt, CA

“Jeff, it’s great to see you keeping Harry Eng’s legacy alive. Your bottles are true works of art.”

Eugene Burger, Magician
Chicago, IL

“For many years I have been a huge fan of Harry Eng’s work with impossible objects in a bottle.  With all due respect to the master: there’s a new kid in town.  Your Bottle Magic bottles are simply stunning.  You’re creating bottles that are simply mind boggling . . . impossibility caught for all to admire and speculate.

Your bottles are true ART.  You’re professional and really do care about your customers needs and satisfaction…  I LOVED the piece you created for me and proudly display it on my mantel.  I hope to add many more of your creations to my collection.”

Tim Trono

“My son’s eyes popped when he saw the deck of cards inside the Mistic Juice bottle. Santa will be delivering one to his house this year. Fantastic work Jeff! I continue to marvel at these impossible objects.”

Mike Powers, Magician
La Porte, IN

“Jeff your bottles truly are inexplicable and bewildering. Everyone I’ve proudly shown mine to has been awe-struck, it’s simply superb. Thanks so much for your fantastic service. It’s been a true pleasure dealing with you and I’ll look forward to buying another bottle from you.”

Steve Mcgrath
Perth, Australia

“Jeff Scanlan’s workmanship is great.  His attention to detail receives top marks. You can bet that I will be showing my bottles off and purchasing more of his exquisite work.”
