All magic props and illusions on this page have been designed, created and painted by hand by Richard Leigh over the last thirty years.

All props are in superb working order and are used in performance to this day. This extensive collection of hand made props are very unusual, highly decorative and themed. Each with written routine and direction from Richard which has been honed and audience tested to the highest degree over a long and dedicated career to the art of theatrical magic.
