I didn't win last week, but was pressed into service because of the winner's previous commitment.

The creator of THIS [images2.fotki.com] Gizmo has given it a specific name.

Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to 1) provide the exact name, and 2) tell us its intended purpose.

I'm afraid clues will be few and far between since they might tend to lead you in the wrong direction rather than help you.

BTW, it is NOT a pipe of any sort.

Good luck.

Function is in the eye of the beholder.

Hint: The study of gizmos, isn't there a word for that?

1) No

Sorry I edited my post, and you must have responded to the cache version.

So to recap, its made of clay and could be a
piece of art, maybe even a functional piece of
art.

Hmmmmmmmmmmm.....

Ign, I believe there were other hints also. As to clay, it is a metamorphosed clay.

The name of the gizmo has three words. One of the words is "ancient". Keep up the good work Ign

JonB, I'm almost 100% sure the gizmo was made within the past hundred years.

How did I miss that hint! DUH! :)

Mac,
Let's see a pic of your stero system. Anyone who knew what that amp was has very fine taste when it comes to audio.
