A Cast Iron Incense Bowl - named Fountain to
honour Fountains found in Zen gardens
The Fountain Incense Bowl is a heavy, quality item - ideal for Incense connoisseurs looking for something both good looking and practical.
This is an Incense Bowl with a central column on which sits a device with 5 holes for Incense Sticks. This can be taken out in order to eject any stubborn ends of Incense sticks, that need some persuasion to free up the holes!
As the holes are central to this bowl, the ash from the burnt sticks will collect within the bowl, so emptying can be done after many sticks have been
Fountains are common elements within Japanese gardens, and this Incense Bowl reflects this - with scrolls of smoke

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 this incense holder:
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 room. Keep out of reach of children and animals.
