Incense Burner

2016   /   L:5” x W:5” x H:9”
Anodized Cast Aluminum.

The act of lighting incense is ritualistic. The cast aluminum incense holder takes this permise and attempts to bring attention to the atmosphere of this routine. The form draws attention to the smoke that slowly dances and ribbons out of the incense holder. When one carefully lights the incense, placing it on the stand and closing the lid, one is faced with a sense of anticipation for the smoke to appear and the aroma to reach their nose; an aura of calm resonates through the smoke.
