Ceramic Buddha Machine #2

Ceramic Buddha Machine

Inspired by the Buddhist prayer boxes found at temples around Asia, the original Buddha Machine was a small plastic box that blurred the line between music box and musical instrument, playing ambient loops by Beijing-based duo Christiaan Virant and Zhang Jian, aka FM3.  I have featured it many times in this blog and own two myself.

I heard that there was a ceramic version made and apparently Schriftbecher were the guys who developed it. I would love to get my hands on one of these.
