The graceful elegance of koh (the art of Japanese incense) takes the form of an agave plant in the desert in this beautiful brass burner from Tennen. Designed with beauty and functionality in mind, this multipurpose burner is designed to fit all types of incense, including cones, sticks, and spirals.
Founded in 2001 by Ethan Wessel and Sarah Swartz Wessel, Tennen is a multidisciplinary architectural firm based in Phoenix, USA. After becoming dissatisfied with the lack of beautiful, functional incense burners, they created their own, designed to keep the nub of the incense stick from sticking to the holder after burning. From buildings to aromas, their design projects pursue aesthetic simplicity inspired by the culture and design sensibilities of Japan - honesty of materials, minimalism, and the changing seasons.
Please note: While this incense holder is designed to accommodate many types of incense, there is a chance that sticks from certain brands may not fit the opening. For best results, use a Tennen brand incense.
Dimensions: Height: 0.7" Diameter: 1.25"
Care: Use a soft cloth with a liquid brass cleaner as needed. For blackened brass, use soft cloth and paste wax polish as needed. With time and use, your incense burner will develop a beautiful patina. Note: Avoid touching the burner while incense is burning, as the cover may grow hot during and for a short period after.
