Lota Vase

Lota vase – clown magic prop

The Lota Vase is one of my favorite props, although it’s not one that I use on a regular basis.  In a nutshell, it’s a specially constructed metal vase that is filled with water (or some other liquid), emptied out, and can then be emptied again, and again, and again.  It’s well-made (mine has lasted nearly 10 years so far), and versatile.  It can be used in any skit or routine where you use or need water.  I recommend that you don’t use the Lota vase as it’s own trick.  Instead, use it as part of a larger routine.

For example, I used it once in a Children’s Church routine where I emptied the vase’s water into a transparent glass, where I took a drink from.  A moment later, I again emptied the vase into another glass, and gave it to an assistant.  Another moment later, I emptied it yet again, and gave the glass to someone else.  At this point, the children’s eyes were as big as saucers, and one of them mentioned how the Lota vase ‘never’ ran out of water!  This gave me a perfect opening to talk about the inexhaustible love of God, the point of the entire routine.  Please note how much more effective it was to have the children point out the ‘magic’, instead of my pointing it out to them.

Anywhere that you’re going to use water in a routine, feel free to use the Lota vase.  It adds a touch of magic to your performance, and after all, clowns are supposed to be magical creatures who have magic happening all of the time.
