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. I applied my nautilus design 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.
There are 3 holes to accommodate different sized incense sticks. The edges are fine, thin & smooth giving the piece a pale outline. It is lightweight & tactile. The finish is a dark cobalt blue crackle glaze which has a high shine & tiny hairline cracks & a melted glass appearance, It has a clean modern feel & would look great in 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.
Length 10 1/2" wide 3 3/4" tapering to a point.
The underside is partially glazed & has my artist signature.
