Inspired by broken shards of sea shells washed up on the beach this simple handmade stoneware nautilus shell incense burner is a great piece for your home decor. It is unique in design & has great appearance & function. The tray has a raised nautilus shell design which I applied to the stoneware clay while it was damp. The edges are turned up slightly to create a tray for catching the ashes as they fall. It has 3 holes to accommodate different size incense sticks. The edges are fine, thin & smooth giving the piece a pale outline. It is lightweight & tactile. The finish is matte rusty iron red with dark & light coloration in the pattern details. It has a distressed finish with a slightly rough grainy feel. The style is clean & modern. A great piece for a minimal style home.
Incense is a great way to keep your home smelling lovely & creating an ambiance. It also has ritualistic & aromatherapy purpose commonly used for yoga practice, meditation & for benefitting your general health & well being. I recommend buying good quality incense sticks for full benefit. Please remember not to leave incense sticks burning unattended due to fire risk.
