From the place we live, we can see mountains far away when the weather is good. That is why we think we’re lucky to live in Taiwan(In 2020,we moved to Taitung,there are mountains behind our home). 

The pattern and thickness of the wood symbolize feelings we have for the mountains in Taiwan.

 

The incense holder features a thick wooden plate showing the wood pattern. Inserting an incense stick to the plate, a simple but gentle work of lines and surfaces is completed.

The incense holder can also be used as a small plate.

The brass holding component adds more details to the piece: it makes it easier to remove the burnt-out incense and helps to prevent the incense from burning the wood plate.

We hope this work can reflect our pursuance of quality life, giving a simple and gentle touch to its different aspects, such as space, smell, vision, and atmosphere. We have been using it for a while, and we like it very much.

We recommend this product to those who prefer to experience life through smell.

 

In the morning, you might be woken up by kids, or the intruding sunlight because you forgot to close the curtain last night. You might spend a few more minutes in bed, but you will finally stretch and get up, embracing the start of a new day.

Everyone has a unique morning routine: some do stretches, while others listen to podcasts or morning news. Some people play songs that make them happy the whole day while brushing teeth, washing faces, and preparing to leave for work. As for us, we prepare breakfast for our kids while making ourselves coffee, then get the kids ready for school. Our day starts like this.

Since we received a box of incense from a family member, we have been using it every day before going downstairs and making breakfast. The smell helps to calm our minds and ease the morning depression.

 

However, we found the incense holder we used in the past somehow unsatisfying. Sometimes, ashes fell on the table, which is a hassle to clean up; other times, we found it difficult to remove incense sticks after they were burnt down because they were stuck in the incense hole. In light of those problems, we decided to design our own incense holder, which can contain all the fallen ashes without taking up much space. Its design should also make it easier to remove incense remnants. More importantly, it should be pleasing to the eyes.

我們居住的地方,天氣好的時候能看見遠方的山,我們想這也是身在台灣幸福的地方(2020年,我們移居台東,家後即有群山)。

透過木頭的紋路及厚度來表達我們身在台灣對於山脈的情感,

讓置入線香後,由線與面的構成,完成一件溫潤、簡約的作品。

在不使用線香的情況下,也可以成為一個獨立的置物小碟。

在放香頭小洞裡鑲上黃銅,除了是對細節的追求以外,

也讓香在燃盡時,也可保留一小段讓我們可以取出,也不至於燒黑木盤。

 

我們希望透過作品,來傳達我們對於生活美的追求,不論是在空間、嗅覺、視覺、及氛圍上,簡單而溫潤。如果你/妳也*喜歡透過氣味來品味生活*,推薦給你/妳:)

早晨,被孩子吵醒,偶爾因為昨晚忘了拉上窗簾,而被陽光叫醒。
花了一點時間賴賴床,然後伸伸懶腰準備起床,開始新的一天。

每個人都有著早晨儀式,有的人是做做伸展操,有的人是打開廣播、屒間新聞、抑或是打開自己的音樂播放器,播上那幾首讓一整天都感覺舒服愉快的音樂,一邊刷牙洗臉準備出門上班。或像是我們,幫孩子們做著早餐,邊幫自己沖上一杯咖啡,準備送孩子上學去。開始這新的一天。

自從家人送了我們一盒線香之後,我們喜歡在下樓準備早餐之前,點上它,透過嗅覺來平穩自己的心,順便消除一些起床氣(笑。
