Doom and gloom may be our speciality, but we believe that carrying on as normally as possible will help to boost morale during the current crisis. We will be carrying on as close to normal as possible so you can order from our shopping cart and we will do our very best to process your order. If there is to be any delay we will let you know as soon as possible. Stay safe, stay well - The Black Hart

Black Hart is an experienced bizarre magical performer and proprietor of Black Hart Productions and Black Artefacts, specialising in ‘spooky’ entertainment and fortune telling.  All the items in our on-line catalogue are used in real life performing situations for the paying public.  There are no ‘pipe dreams’ here.


The company was established in 1996 and is now Europe’s leading manufacturer and dealer in this genre of magic. Black Artefacts is a small family business and we only sell direct to our customers, we do not sell wholesale to other magic dealers, so you can only buy Black Artefacts’ effects from us. This means that we can control the quality of our products and the service you receive, and you can speak directly to the person who created, manufactured and dispatched the effect that you have purchased.


We have a vested interest in creating happy and satisfied customers. If you ask for our advice, we will never advise you to buy anything that we don’t honestly feel is suitable for you. We aim to treat our customers as we ourselves would wish to be treated.


How we operate:


Black Artefacts is an ‘artisan’ manufacturer and dealer. We keep our ‘components’ in stock and make up your effects when your orders come in (aside from the Black Video DVD and Black Book IV). This means that every effect is individually made for YOU, they have not sat on a shelf waiting for years. There is no mass manufacturing process so every effect that we make up will be slightly different from all others and the person producing the effect (me - The Black Hart), is the same person who ‘invented’ it, wrote the script, made the prototypes, tried them out, manufactured it, photographed it, updated the website and eventually dispatched it to you. This gives YOU a level of personal service that is just about unrivalled in today’s world.
