"Boshan" Mountain Ceramic Incense Burner

235

This hand-made ceramic incense burner by our artist, Ji Shang Zhao Wu, is his modern take on a classic burner motif.

Boshan mountain incense burners have been created by artists for over 2000 years. The mountain is said to represent the mountain where the Taoist immortals lived, with waves surrounding the mountain and the incense smoke evoking mist. For example, see this 2000-year old Boshan burner at the Art Institute Chicago.

Ours are 16cm tall and 9.8cm in diameter.
