This blackened terracotta incense holder is moulded in the shape of an elephant. Terracotta clay pottery is as old as Bengali civilisation. This clay pottery uses all natural ingredients such as catechu, mangosteen extracts and charcoal. The clay is glazed with the juice of the mangosteen fruit extract and they are later soaked in this juice and baked in a wood-fired kiln. When they are placed in the kiln, the potter creates smoke and seals the firing chamber to blacken the clay. Hand crafted by skilled artisans working with CORR – The Jute Works, one of our fair trade partners in Bangladesh.
Instructions for use: Place holder on a flat heat resistant surface when burning incense. Never leave burning incense unattended. Burn incense in a ventilated area, away from flammable objects, draughts or open windows. Do not move holder while incense is burning. Ensure incense cone or stick is totally extinguished before discarding.
