PRODUCT STORY
This artful, acoustic amplifier brings a touch of earthy beauty to your high-tech gear. It features a bamboo platform, which holds a handcrafted stoneware vase, glazed in rich, lead-free color. To boost the volume of your smartphone or MP3 player, simply place it on the platform and press play. The sound waves are refocused and redirected by the stoneware chamber, creating a much bigger sound without any need for batteries or an electrical outlet. The handcrafted beauty of the amplifier also makes it a pitch-perfect visual accent, whether it's in use or not. Handmade in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.

This handmade stoneware and bamboo amplifier is a artful way to get big sound out of your little smartphone speakers, without additional electronics. Would you pump of the volume with a charming chamber?

Somewhat attractive, but not something I would use, and the techies in my life use more modern speakers.

Love! I've been using the phone-in-a-dish technique for a while, and this would be much prettier on my nightstand!

The two pieces - platform and chamber - are dissonant in style.

I totally disagree! This is a passively powered "band shell" for your iphone. How much "greener" can you get? My husband has been making these out of plastic cups for years. It's great to see someone making an "artful" one!
