We are very excited to introduce our signature collection of PATCH NYC incense burners including this golden Beetle.
We began this new collection by sketching a series of shapes and objects that we thought would make interesting incense burners. To bring our pencil and ink sketches to life, we carved 3D models from hard wax like we do with some of our jewelry pieces. Using a variety of sculpting tools and a patient hand, we scraped and scored the hard wax surfaces to emulate the line quality of our original sketches. Once we had a finished wax prototype we made a mold and had the design cast in solid brass by a fine jewelry caster. As a last step, each brass incense burner is tumbled, and the surface is carefully polished to enhance the detail.
PATCH NYC incense burners come with a black ceramic dish to keep falling ashes contained while protecting your tabletop.
Beetle measures about .5" tall x 1.75" wide x 2" long. Black ceramic dish measures 3.75" diameter x .75" deep. Hole fits a standard incense stick similar to Astier de Villatte incense. Sold individually. Made in the USA.
Please note: each incense burner is cast and polished individually so gold color and finish may vary slightly.
