I really do feel at my most content when being near nature and felt I needed to express this on my latest adaption of our popular Pentagram Incense Holder. There is something symbolic and real about the elements that surround us. Spirit, Air, Fire, Earth and Water. Air being the element of the East, Water for the West, Fire for the South and Earth for the North. Each element has a profound effect on how we feel.
I also wanted the black to look more vintage with a patina effect, I achieved this by washing the black giving it a old wooden feel to it making it look aged.
Now for the informative part - Painted soapstone with pentagram pattern design, light carving all around with vents in the very top only. It is approx. 28 cm tall. The base has a rubber cork with a hole to let you stand your incense stick
A striking burner with top ventilated design in which the incense sticks burn slightly slower.
The main colour is matt black which has been hand painted onto the incense burner whilst the pentagram has a purple hue which has then been etched into the burner giving a magical contrast.
For those of you who love the Arthurian legend you will recognise this symbol which is on the the shield of Sir Gawain. It is also used to protect against evil and is largely associated with Wicca.
I personally love using this incense burner if I wish to cleanse my home when using incense such as White Sage, Dragon Blood, Sweet grass or Palo Santo
Incense towers are a great way to burn incense sticks, the carved designs help to diffuse the smoke and spread the aroma around the room unlike the steady stream of smoke that is given off from a normal holder. Our towers have the added bonus of containing the ash and keeping it tidy while it is burning.
All our towers are hand carved from natural soapstone and have a primitive art look and feel about them. No two are exactly the same.
