These clay speakers called ‘Mapuguagquen’ were made by Chilean designer Pablo Ocqueteau. Mapuguaquen actually means ‘sound of the earth’ and is very inspired by old traditions and contemporary technology.

These speakers have been handcrafted from clay and were put together on a potter’s wheel. The purpose of making speakers from clay was to rescue this manufacturing tradition while still keeping up with the needs of the modern day. What other modern day technologies could be recreated with clay?
