andrew beaumont is a british ceramic designer who recently graduated from the university of plymouth. his work is of particular note for its combination of ceramic and wood.  beaumont explored this theme in depth for his thesis projects which included a series of vases and speakers. the vase series features ceramic vases in archetypal forms combined with bent wood which envelopes the vase with smooth contours as if it were moulded around. the ceramic and wood speaker set is deigned to amplify the sound from small ear bud headphones. the headphones attach to the speaker at the back and the sound is reverberated through the ceramic bell, much like a gramophone.
