Modern Design: Joey Roth Ceramic Speakers (8 pics)

Modern design is often beautiful in a minimalistic way. This set of Ceramic Speakers by San Francisco–based designer Joey Roth is a perfect example of this…

Built from handmade porcelain, cork, and Baltic birch, the speakers are entirely plastic-free. Even the volume control knob on the stainless steel amplifier is made from paulownia wood, which gives it an earthy feel. The Ceramic Speakers are compact, sporting custom-built 4-inch drivers. Including the birch stands, the speakers are 6x7x8 inches.
