Japanse Incense bowl Koro handmade from quality wood

Japanese incense bowl traditional model. The incense bowls are hand turned from quality wood with a copper or steel inlay. The bowl has a classic Japanese design as commonly used in Japanese altars and temples. The maker, Tom van Dijk, lived in Japan for years and was involved in several woodworking projects.

Beautiful on a (Buddhist) altar or in an oriental / eastern interior. The incense burner is commonly filled with white sand, which holds the incense sticks very well (bag of white sand and bundle of Japanese incense are included). The depth of the inlay makes this bowl also suitable for longer and heavier incense sticks. The incense burners are available in the following wood types: Maple (yellowish color), Walnut (darkbrown color), Padouk (red color), and Purple heart (purple color).

Information and orders

The incense bowls are available in two sizes. The standard model has a diameter of 12.5 cm and height of 6.5 cm. The big model with base has a diameter of 15 cm and height of 8,5 cm. Both models are made from a massive piece of wood. In consultation, incense bowls can be custom-sized.

The copper inlay of the incense bowls has a diameter of 8 cm and depth of 4.5 cm, which gives enough margin for longer and heavier incense sticks to stand firmly. A bag of white sand and a bundle of Japanese incense are included. The copper inlay is hand forced by coppersmith Wissink
