Ridge Begins | 回旋起始
Our Ridge series of incense burners explores the intersection of the organic and platonic geometric forms. The movement of water underlies each of the pieces, chosen because water is a central tenet of traditional Chinese aesthetics and sensibilities. Throughout history, the famed Chinese Gardens – always composed with ponds as centerpieces – was a place of calm and inspiration for poets, scholars and the imperial household alike.
Ridge Begins starts from one dot, from which a series of abstracted waves spread out like a ripple in a pond. The ripples and the bronze ball are placed slightly askew from the center line of the burner for a dynamic composition. Also available with the walnut Ridge Base.
