THE GELLER EFFECT – SYMBOL OF PEACE
World famous psychic Uri Geller, who has captivated audiences around the world with mysterious feats of spoon bending, watch starting and clock stopping (including Big Ben) by sheer mental power, has turned his mind to art.
To appreciate Uri’s life as an artist take a look at his art web site at http://www.urigellerart.com/. Uri has designed for famous singers like N*sync producing their logo, and art for Belinda Carlisle’s smash hit album and T shirt.
Uri Geller recently has turned his mind to crockery with the launch of a limited addition range of beautiful plates for Poole Pottery displaying his art.
Uri Geller now has a car which perfectly symbolises his persona. He has created the Geller Effect. The car is his cherished custom built 1976 Cadillac encrusted with approximately 5,000 pieces of contorted cutlery painstakingly riveted to the car’s body. Some of his treasured pieces were owned, used or touched by famous personalities. (See Below).
Many have semi-precious stones and crystals energised with Uri’s energy, imbedded in them in a most exciting artistic fashion. The bonnet’s mascot is a rare rock crystal globe once belonging to the surrealist master Salvador Dali. In addition looking closely it can be seen that some cutlery is carefully arranged to form the signs of the many religions and the symbol of peace adorns the car.
Uri, who lives in Britain, bent some of the cutlery with brain power and the rest were artfully shaped with his Israeli friend, sculptor Avi Pines, who used physical technical means. They spent over 6 months creating this masterpiece. The ornaments adorning the car include several originals which Uri has salvaged from his 25 year metal bending career. A number come from his personal celebrity collection. The word peace is incorporated into the design in several languages including Arabic and Hebrew.
British, Israeli, Arabic and Indian school children donated around 1,000 of the spoons and forks, The priceless Cadillac has moved from the prestigious Israel Museum in Jerusalem (from where Uri intends to drive to Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and even Iran in the cause for peace in the Middle East) to the American visionary arts museum in the United States, where it will remain throughout the years 2000 and 2001. The car has also been displayed at the Jewish museum in London, England (1999).

“There is no spoon!”
“The world needs your amazing talents. I need them”
“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”
Tannens Magic Blog
“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”
James Randi (In an open letter to Abracadabra Magazine)
Sir Elton John
“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”
“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”
“Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons, better than witnessing new born nebulae’s in bloom”
