Proving you can make a speaker and/or iPod accessory nearly out of anything, this dried and hollow gourd speaker naturally has a modernist shape to it. You can even accessorize further with a separate amp unit and hang them from the ceiling...

Besides the eye pleasing natural shape and farmer's market cred one would get amongst certain crowds, the Gourd speaker doesn't require require additional batteries or an AC adaptor according to B-Shop. One can assume these produce a warm sound due to the gourd's acoustic characteristics, but probably at a modest sound level due to the unamplified setup. Makes us wonder what other produce could be converted into a speaker housing (there's a speaker DIY kit for those of you ready to get going). About $149 per speaker.
