Ridge Begins | 回旋起始
Our Ridge series of incense holders (or 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.
