Playing off the traditional candle holder, we’ve created a new visual by enclosing the incense stick within the traditional shape of a taper candle. It plays with our understanding of form and it’s function giving us both a historical reference and an update at the same time.
The glass cylinder can be removed to allow for cleaning. When the incense tube is not required, the holder also functions with a standard taper candle. The base is again heavy and rendered in materials that elevate the value of the object.
