Walter Battiss Ceramics $220+
Greatly inspired by archaeology and rock art, the late South African artist Walter Battiss beautifully fused indigenous stone markings with abstract painterly concepts to become one of the country's premier painters.

Battiss' art is now celebrated in a range of tableware by Mervyn Gers, a highly talented ceramicist who creates his own shapes, colors, glazes and decals. A percentage of profits from each sale are donated to the Walter Battiss Museum.

Buchla Electronic Musical Instruments
200e System 7 $29,999
Donald Buchla is undeniably a pioneer of electronic music. A contemporary of Robert Moog, he built his first voltage-controlled synthesizer in the '60s, which would provide nearly infinite possibilities of sounds to artists, and not limit them to musical notes in the equal temperament scale. Today, his modular systems are used by artists from Trent Reznick to Deadmau5 to create unpredictable sounds. The Buchla 200e series first launched in 2005, and System 7 is the one containing the full works, from six waveform generators to a duo phonic pitch class generator. The symphonies of the future lie within these modules.
