Crimson Incense Bowl by Shoyeido with a free bag of White marble sand.
A high-quality ceramic Incense bowl from Shoyeido.
This comes in a bold Crimson colour with a white, hand-painted circle around the entire bowl. This white circle is reminiscent of an Ensō - a sacred symbol in Zen Buddhism. An Ensō means circle and is associated with the 'circle of togetherness' or the wholeness of existence in many religions. For Zen Buddhists in particular, Ensō is a symbol of the clean and strong Zen aesthetic.
Shoyeido's Crimson glaze adds a colorful flourish to incense-scented surroundings.
Please note: due to the uniqueness of all handcrafted and hand-glazed pottery, variations in glaze colors and effects are common. The piece you receive will not exactly match the image displayed.

Tips on burning Incense Sticks:
Light the tip of the stick with a match or lighter, then gently blow or fan out the flame, leaving a red ember burning at the tip of the stick. Then insert the stick into the holder. This could be a hole designed for the purpose, or a more open sand area, which holds the stick well and allows flexibility for sticks of different diameters.
When you use a sand-filled bowl for burning Incense sticks, getting rid of the ash is easy. When you want to rid the bowl of accumulated ash, take the bowl outside to an open area, stand up-wind and blow the ash away gently downwind. The ash will dissipate, leaving clean sand behind.
Things to be cautious about when using incense sticks:
Incense sticks are safer than candles – no open flame – but please be sensible; do not burn unattended. Don’t place in a drafty position (will burn down too quickly and dissipate aroma). Make sure Incense is fully extinguished before leaving the room. Keep out of
reach of children and animals.
