Clay Speakers

'mapuguaquén' by chilean designer pablo ocqueteau was recently shortlisted in the 
designboom / macef competition 'the intelligent hand'

The identity of chilean design is far from big-name brands and their large industrial factories. It is a country whose traditions and cultural identity are still prominent through the craft-worker's hands,whose techniques were taught from masters. 'mapuguaquén' (mapudungun for 'sound of the earth') are speakers which are made from clay and have been formed on a potter's wheel. it was developed as a proposal to rescue this manufacturing tradition, respecting local identity, but still keeping in mind current contemporary needs. HERE

The oldest remaining work from the house of the arm. I must have been 19 when I made this serving platter. Large grooves and unglazed surfaces don't make for the best serving conditions, but what can I say, it's been a long two years since then.
