Description from Nur Ceramics
The Acacia senegal produces a resin known as gum arabic. The dried resin of this tree has been burned over hot charcoal for thousands of years to be used in ceremony and in every day ritual cleansing of space and body.
Incense was burned as an offering to the Gods with the belief that the smoke carried one’s prayers up to the heavens. This vessel’s asymmetrical arms are inspired by the beautifully awkward branches of the Acacia tree, a staple of Africa’s landscape.
