INCENSE POT House - Black
This concrete HOUSE object is an incense burner made of mortar. Inspired by pastoral landscapes, the House is a delightfully playful motif of home. The tiny windows are embedded with coloured glass and the doors with wire for air flow, and the expression of the eaves are all careful details that make these objects so beautiful.
PLEASE NOTE Traditional incense cones are used in these holders. You can use your favourite incense cones from your usual supplier or you can choose from our range here.
MATERIALS Mortar (main body), glass, stainless mesh, brass (chimney)
DIMENSIONS W50 x D60 x H95 mm
Handcrafted in batches by Nobuhiro Sato and his small team in Kyoto, each piece is made one-by-one by pouring mortar that's commonly used in building materials into a wooden mold. Expect colour uneveness due to the impression of wood grain that comes from each mold, creating a warm and simple texture. There are fine chips and bubbles to enjoy as the texture of this work.
"Burn incense and cover it with this house-shaped cover, watch the smoke rise from the chimney. Looking at the slowly swaying smoke of incense, I feel that time is slowly flowing. At the end of the day or on a holiday in your room, why not spend a relaxing time burning your favourite incense... and when you don't burn incense, you may enjoy decorating it like a cityscape with small items."
