Our Dark Moon Incense and Smudge Bowl brings a touch of elegance to your altar with stunning midnight black and high gloss glazing reminiscent of onyx or obsidian crystals. This bowl has been hand thrown, turned, glazed, and fired by artisan crafters in Japan to provide a lifetime of beauty and functionality to your home or sacred space. Three feet on the base provide heat buffering to protect your surfaces. This special bowl is perfect for burning incense, holding smudge wands, palo santo sticks, offerings, and so much more!
Each bowl is made individually. Base colors are shown but every glazing is unique. No bowl will ever be identical to another. Note that the color of this vessel is high gloss deep back from top to bottom as well as the interior. The leg base is unglazed. The line differentiation in the photo is purely due to the reflective surface it rested upon during photos.
Use as a smudge bowl to safely hold and store your smudge bundles and sage wands during and after use. Add incense sand to the bottom you have an ideal bowl for incense sticks, cones, or even charcoal tabs for herbal incense, powders, and resins. Pour in some water and you have a blessing bowl or a representation of water. Leave it empty and add crystals or offerings to deity as you work within your personal practice.
