New Product: Tipi Incense Holders

These two-piece tipis were made for burning cone incense. Leslie Stevenson of In Watermelon Sugar commissioned me to make a few of these for her shop in Baltimore, MD. After seeing them come out of the kiln today, I couldn't help but fall in love.

To use, just lift the top conical part off, place a cone in the middle of the base (just like where a fire would burn in a tipi), light the cone incense, and place the top back on allowing the smoke to escape from the top. Decorated with Aztec symbols, these tipis are great to decorate a home. To purchase, click here
