They are the best. Has Steve Dick stopped making them?

I just purchased one from Hocus-Pocus and they were listed on Stevens site when last I checked (no longer listed in Denny's catalog, however)

Pretty soon I will release my own hydorstatic glasses which have an additional effect that you can suspend the whole glass under your flat hand and still release the water anytime you want.

Stay tuned

What size glass will this be? One of the reasons I was looking for the Superior version is the large 16oz glass.
When will your version be ready? I would love to see a demo or at least a photo of the props

Michael,

Elmwood Magic says the have one (by Steven Dick) of these left here.

Midwest Magic also lists the Steven Dick version here.

Magic Methods lists this one (looks different from the Elmwood Glass) here.

Don't know if they really have it in stock (or if it is the real deal*) but Hank Lee lists this here.

Good luck,
JMD

*You may want to contact Hank Lee to confirm that this is actually the product you want before you place your order. I personally stopped dealing with Hank Lee after ordering this & received a cheap version from India instead of Steve Dusheck's real thing. (Side note - Steve was kind enough to supply me with a replacement after seeing my post my here on the Genii Forum describing my disappointment with Hank Lee.)

Good luck,
JMD

Yes Steve Duscheck is a classy guy and a fantastic magic creator.

My glass is about 11oz. I guess I will put a video and pictures on my blog within the next two weeks.

Best

Michael,

I wasn't going to forward you a response until I saw that Doug Thornton mentioned my "Hydrostatic Bottles" to you.

I don't know if you are familiar with a "Hydrostatic Milk Bottle." They do not operate with the "Hydrostatic Drinking Glass" disk method that can be misplaced between shows or possibly exposed when the water gushes in to your receptacle. With my Milk Bottles, you can control a slow pouring or a fast gushing of the liquid until the bottle is empty. The best part, for $50.00 you get both the Quart and Pint size bottles including shipping.

Gene Voshell

Ps: I have nothing against using a "Hydrostatic Glass," it is a great prop. I have a Petrie-Lewis model in my collection but it is now for sale.

For those interested in the Hydrostatic Bottle, Jim Steinmeyer has a terrific version in his notes The Secret No One Tells You. It uses a Starbucks Frappuchino bottle, which feels much less "magic-propy" than an object that hasn't been used in daily life by most americans for at least 4 decades; and features an engaging premise. The construction appears very straight forward.

To those manufacturing Hydrostatic Glasses: the taller, the better. Bazar de Magia put out a glass that worked very well made in easier-to-troupe plastic; unfortunately, it looks like a toy cup on stage. The larger the flow of liquid, the larger the response. I would love to see someone manufacture a large, professional grade glass out of a polycarbonate (which looks like glass from inches away, but is virtually indestructible).

I had a kid on stage knock a table over during a show. The clear bowl on top of the table broke, thankfully it was a polycarb bowl and the pieces were all large and dull. One of the worst stage messes I can imagine, from both a practical and liability perspective, is broken glass. We have the technology (Paul Gertner was even lecturing an item with a virtually unbreakable wine glass that actually sounds like glass when tapped), I see no reason to bring real glass on stage and it would be awesome to see a truly professional hydrostatic glass made from a safe material.
