Qi Incense Burner

Qi | 契

The Chinese name for this incense burner or incense holder is 契 (qi, pronounced chee), which has a dual meaning. It means to complement and bond, reflecting the relationship of harmony between the solid bronze base and concrete upper. It also refers to a turning point, like the way the bronze ball can be encased between the two parts when not in use, and then turned to face the top when in use. Ashes from the lit incense will drop through the slit of the concrete for easy collection in the base. A small, subtle design with a substantial presence.

* Note the length of the incense in the photos is approximately 10cm or 4 inches.

As our concrete products are individually hand-made, each one will be different. Characteristics such as air bubbles, slight unevenness, minor scratches or bumps were all incurred in the production process and are unavoidable due to the nature of concrete. These are not considered defects unless they affect the functioning of the product.

We recommend gently wiping with a damp cloth shortly after use. Do not rinse directly under water. Metal parts will be very hot during and immediately after burning, care should be taken to avoid injury.

Avoid contact with oily or colored substances as these will stain the concrete.
