…Joey Roth makes Ceramic Speakers?

Ceramic Speakers

Joey Roth’s Sorapot defined how stylish a teapot could be, and now he’s hoping to bring that style to the speaker world as well, with a set of ceramic speakers that are “designed to leave music untouched”.

These warm, dry and detailed speakers feature 4: full-range drivers and a T-class amplifier, encased in acoustically dead porcelain and cork, creating a remarkably simple path from source to ear.

If you like the looks and want a set of your own, then keep an eye on Joey’s site for the pre-order, or follow him on Twitter for more constant updates.

…Aaron Rose makes some inspiring kicks?

Aaron Rose Shoes

Aaron Rose and DC Shoes have teamed up to create the Rose Mid as part of DC’s Artist Projects.

The shoe, which is available in either a black or wheat colorway, features an interior lined with plaid fabric and custom designed gum soles, with a repeating teardrop pattern that has a single clear teardrop to expose the cork interior.

The shoes come in a custom designed shoe bag, along with a mini ‘zine of Rose’s work, and a Rose designed box.

It’s all designed to pay tribute to the mod, punk and Goth styles that inspired Aaron as a kid, and made him what he is today.

It’s a testament to all the collaborations I’ve had throughout the years that have brought me to this position where someone like DC would come and ask me to make a shoe.”

…Champagne corks can parachute?

Cork Parachute

The Champagne Parachute is sure to please the next time you pop the top on some bubbly. The little parachute attaches to the cork, so when you shoot it off, the cork glides safely down to the ground, rather than abruptly into your eye. Plus, it’s reusable, so you can Evil Knievel your cork each and every time you do a little celebrating.
