Crafted in the shape of a camellia flower, this incense holder is designed to hold an incense stick and has a receiving plate for the ash. The camellia, a recurrent motif for the Tajima City kiln Zōhō-gama, symbolizes longevity, a symbolism that flows from the prolonged life of this evergreen shrub and its long-blooming flower.
The Zōhō-gama kiln specializes in aka-e, a type of ceramicware illustrated with various colours of overglaze, including red, blue, yellow, purple and green, on top of a clear glaze. The bold red colour of the camellia displays the signature sennichi-zuri, a distinctive red pigment which has been pulverised into a fine powder over the course of 1000 days. The fine particles of the powder create a rich tone of muted red that will develop and deepen over the years.

Handwash only.
