Karst | 群山
This collection of modern incense burners (or incense holders) is inspired by the terrarium. A glass cylinder encloses each piece, allowing the backflow incense plume to descend onto the concrete formation beneath, uninterrupted by air.
Inspired by the unique clusters of cone-like hills found in Guilin and Zhangjiajie, Karst is a geometric abstraction that conveys the other worldly feel of these landscapes. The incense burner’s plumes dive and billow around the cluster of cones in varying heights, finally gathering at the foot of the mountain to completely obscure it. Then only the peaks remain and the seemingly unfathomable depth of fog that surrounds it.
