Eric De Metsenaere is actually not a magician, but a passionate physics teacher at the VTI (Free Technical Institute) in Bruegge, Belgium.
His trick is a spectacular one. It is possible through the combination of three physical laws: magnetism, air pressure and surface tension - and probably a little magic.
The water is common tap water - there is nothing else in it.
Eric leaves it up to the audience to figure out how this trick works...
