Ceramic Hands Incense Holder / DishKelsey Melville
Handmade matte-glazed incense burners measure 4 x 2 x .25" (single hand)** and 5 x 4 x .25" (double hand)** and 2.5 x 1.25 x .25" (petite hand); when listed*** there is a slight indent in the end of each (standard sized) palm for holding one incense stick while the rest of the plane can hold other small tools or bundles such as sage and palo santo.
Burners without an indent for incense sticks are ideal for holding incense cones or as a dish for misc. goods!
As with all incense burners, please practice caution and common sense when in use and working with fire!
*Note: due to the handmade process please allow for minimal variations of color and sizing, this is what makes every piece unique!
** *** some variations of black have a micro opening for holding incense sticks. See listings.
Made in Seattle
Originally from North Carolina, Kelsey Melville is a visual artist living and working in Seattle. In 2010, she graduated from Appalachian State University, receiving a BFA in Studio Art with a concentration in Ceramic Sculpture.
The central idea behind Melville’s work deals with our impermanent state of existence and how this drives humanity as a whole. Throughout life, we create connections between parent and child, human and animal, past and present, to add value to our existence. Melville’s artwork portrays this delicate balance between life and death, and how we can draw hope and beauty from it. By acknowledging that our time is limited here on earth, we are motivated to live life to the fullest, and let trivial pursuits subside.
