Review of Untrammelled from the Top Magicians on the Wizard Magic Review. Thanks for the review!
Untrammelled is a tribute to the timeless classic Ball & Vase.
Enjoy the trailer:
The basic effect of the classic Ball & Vase routine is that the magician removes the ball from the vase and places it in the magician's pocket. Suddenly, the ball reappears inside the vase.
To conceal the gimmick and make the movement more natural, we made some innovations to the classic version of Ball & Vase. After extensive experiments, we devised a new method to control the vanish and appearance of the small ball, circumventing the problem of the gimmick being exposed. As a result, a visible extra layer no longer exists, allowing for better concealment of the secret. The original designed method allows for exactly the same action when lifting the gimmick, making the move to activate the gimmick more natural and covert, with no suspicion whatsoever.
The design of the first prototype draws inspiration from the three gourd-shaped stone pagodas located at The Three Pools Mirroring the Moon, one of the ten scenic spots of West Lake (Xihu) in Hangzhou, China. The relationship of the three pools, of the moon and the lake, illusion and reality, truth and lies, allude to the vanish, appearance, and transformation of the ball in Untrammelled.
The vase was designed with reference to the stone pagodas and is made of Mufunjo Wood. The dark color gives off an antique, imposing, yet calm vibe. The weight of solid wood prevents tilts and unwanted shifts, allowing for a comfortable and smooth performance.
Three small balls are included in the package, twoof which are beechwood balls (brown), allowing for better weight, feel, and grip. The other is a multi-faceted crystal glass ball, used to create a starry magical atmosphere as presented with the included routine.
An exclusive custom solid wood display boxwith a clear sliding lid will store the prop safely and can also be used as a display case on your shelf or magic corner.

I am absolutely delighted with this wonderful vase. It works and looks stunning. Thank you for creating a masterpiece. Glen
EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE !
It is beautifully made, and a pleasure to own it.
Great craftsmanship, this new approach to the method of the ball and vase it’s both clever and elegant in construction as well as reliable .
The wood it’s of great quality and it’s the right size for parlor.
Highly recommend it!
This is not just a magic product. This is a work of art. I was amazed on the quality of this. Once you hold and see it on actual, you will know that this is worth your money. I really love every single detail of this product. It looks fantastic and it feels amazing. Highly recommended. 10 stars!
This is an absolutely gorgeous, top quality item. So glad that I purchased this. Comes in a lovely storage box and I will be purchasing the Leather Carry case next month when I get paid.
You can see and feel the quality of this product and the materials it is made from.
It is gimmicked differently from previous ball and vase design and is more convincing as the lid is lifted from the same position every time.
The faceted crystal ball is also a nice touch.
This is one of my favourite magic props. Very happy.
My persona is a steampunk/Victorian era magician and in that era almost all the props were wood. The quality from TCC is unmatched and absolutely amazing, I have never had any issues and shipping was fast even through customs. The feel of Untremmelled is very high quality right down to the last detail, it is a joy to use and I am proud to have it in my performances!
Une pure merveille
This is most probably my most favourite magic prop from TCC. Its just wonderful!!!
WOW!! Who would have ever thought that the traditional Ball & Vase could be improved upon. This is a beautifully crafted work of art. This Ball & Vase is one you will be proud to own and to perform. TCC equals top quality at affordable prices!!
A beautiful, expertly crafted magic prop. Am absolutely wonderful piece of close-up magic!
Only one word can be used, glorious.
I made the image here for non-magic friends to show how perfect and outstanding magic apparatus can be.
Everything about this brings delight from the remarkable wrapping right through to a method that should set the world of deceptive principles on its heels. Let us simply say that exquisite workmanship is responsible for the miracle that anybody can do.
The ball is there and then it is not. Then, reverse. Nothing awkward, everything sublime.
Though please give your audience a little time to drink in the beauty of the equipment finesse.
It is such a feat of perfection that you could set up a box office and sell tickets to see it.
It’s rare to find such a beautiful and sneaky magical prop as Untrammelled. The workmanship is perfect and it makes me want to practice, or should I say, “play?” It is so fun! It’s an ice cream cone that doesn’t melt. The price was surprisingly low, too.
It really is beautiful thing to own and play around with. I love how this looks and feels. Only reason for giving it 4/5 stars is that one part of the prop feels a little delecate (though it may actually not be), so I can’t handle it as carelessly as I would like to.
Also I think the box that comes with it is beautiful but if you are going to use this vase on gigs I recommend getting the leather case. The original box that comes with the vase seems perfect for your shelf but is not the most convenient way to take these props somewhere else than your home.
Beautifully presented and well-made. I really like this trick and the inclusion of the crystal really adds a new dimension. Buy it, it's a great adaptation of an oldie.
Beautiful workmanship, presentation box and quality of vase and balls.

Very nice handwork and great quality!
The additional elements that come with this are outstanding. I purchased extra. They work well with many other effects. Substantial and weighted well. I love the leather travel tube, too. I put it in my messenger bag… Then... Magic!
This is such a fun effect in a beautifully crated wooden tower! I’ve added an eyeball and other elements! This looks like a vintage antique! People are left totally blown away. I really enjoy this effect.
