„Das sogenannte Oloid sieht nicht nur ähnlich aus wie eine Ohrmuschel, sondern kann auch rollen. Beim Rollen der Form als auch beim Spielen in der Hand erklingt ein zauberhafter Ton aus dem Inneren des goldenen Oloids. Was sich darin verbirgt lässt sich nur erahnen.“ – Sofia Kocher

Thanks to Florian Wagner and Olivia Haas for supporting the students in your workshop.
