It’s truly incredible that glass blowing, which can be traced back to the 16th century (BC), continues to be a relevant art technique in the 21st century. Aric Snee’s blown-glass iPod amplifier is an object that symbolically encompasses this span of time.

Glass blowing is the art of hollowing out and shaping molten glass. You’ve probably observed the understated grace of glass-blown ornaments, vases and cups. Snee’s ‘My iPhone Amp’ is no exception. The amplifier doubles as an iPhone stand with the bilateral shape being responsible for augmenting the sound of the iPhone’s built-in speakers.

Snee is an American artist who currently teaches Neon and light based sculpture at Ball State University. His speaker would be an exquisite addition to any household. If you’re feeling the urge to purchase, check out his website!
