Emotive Incense Holder

Simple and elegant, an incense holder that can double as an ikebana plate for twigs, dried flowers, or as a backdrop to collected treasures from your walk or vacation. Add a rock, a pinecone, a nod to nature. Then if you're looking to add scent to the atmosphere, use it as its maker intended, to burn natural incense-also sustainably-sourced and sold by Ten Thousand Villages. Handcrafted by artisans with Everest Pottery, a workshop with Sana Hastakala, meaning "small handicraft" in Nepali. Artisans work to preserve the rich artistic skill and local pottery traditions.
