Saggar Incense Holder
Size: Approximately 8-9cm high & about 10-12cm in diameter.
We think these incense burners are the answer to all your incense needs - with a deep bowl that you can fill with sand, stones or crystal chips to create a heat resistant base & high back wall that acts as a wind break, the function is threefold;
- The dipped front edge will hold your Palo Santo Sticks like a cradle, the three holes across the dip encourage air flow to keep the stick lit longer & help it cool faster once it burns out.
- The same three holes hold any size commercially available incense sticks we have seen on the market, fat or thin, there are three size holes to hold your stick exactly at the angle you want it, with the base of the stick held firmly in place by the sand in the bottom of the bowl (which also catches any hot ash falling from the lit end).
- The sand filled bowl also makes the perfect base for charcoal discs, so you can burn your resin incense, dried herbs, powdered incense, or incense cones with ease & safety. The dip at the front guides a gentle flow of air into the centre of the bowl to keep the incense & charcoal burning well & evenly. The sand helps to absorb the heat from the disc & catches all the ash that remains after burning. We even place our Palo Santo Sticks onto a hot charcoal disc (by leaning them up against the back wall of the holder with the tip resting on the lit disc) to keep them burning longer too.
The versatility of this piece means you only require one item for all your incense needs.
Please note that the burner may get hot during use, even using sand in the base, so be sure to place it on a heat resistant surface (like a non flammable table, the ground, or a coaster) & treat it with the same caution you would any item using heat & fire, checking the temperature before picking it up or putting it away.
Each piece is individually handmade and will differ lightly in shape and markings. To see images of the pieces we have available please contact us.
