Solid brass incense holder for cone, spiral, short stick, and long stick incense.
Approximate dimensions: 9cm diameter x 2cm high.
The Agave Basin is designed to hold a stick, cone, or spiral and has a built-in ash catch, the “basin.” The notch on the side of the basin allows a pin to rest, for releasing incense stick remnant from below, without turning over the basin and dumping ash. The pin is not needed for cone or spiral burning.
The Agave Basin is available in natural brass or blackened brass.
Made in limited quantities in Arizona, USA.
SATIN BRASS CARE
The satin brass finish will darken with time. When brand new, it will be most susceptible to fingerprints and oils marks. Exposure to air helps speed the natural darkening/patina,making the fingerprints subtler. Over time a nice patina will reflect the use of the burner. The brass can be washed with a mild soap and warm water, and dried right away with a soft cloth. Water left to sit on the brass will leave water marks. If desired, a brass cleaner such as Renaissance, can be used to even out the patina. Please know that the brass cleaner will leave a residue that is different than the original raw satin finish. As with the polished nickel, excess residue can be cleaned from the underside of cover and the stick holder. The “shadow” of the burning in these locations is inherent, and is a character of a burner that has been enjoyed.
BLACKENED BRASS CARE
The blackened brass is meant to develop a patina, and will have marks of manufacturing and blackening process when new. The blackened brass finish can be cleaned with a soft cloth. A bit of water and small brush can be used to remove excess residue where incense site, being careful not to brush beyond the portion that holds the incense. Brushing will reveal a bit of the natural brass colour.
