The Pebble Incense Holder not only looks like a pebble but is made using techniques apt for its minimalist form. Made with raw clay and fired twice, each one is burnished with a rock to create the smooth texture of stone. Available in two sizes, each one is hand made and unique in shape.
Maki Baxter is an internationally minded artist born in California, raised in Tokyo and artistically inspired by Minimalism, Brutalism and the interpretation of shapes in nature. A Boston Tufts graduate, she worked within the luxury jewellery industry in New York before moving to Kent in the UK, where she pursued a personal passion for pottery.
Her unique works combine clean lines and stark colours with the warmth of natural, smooth and curved forms. Each is handmade and stamped with the kanji character representing her name Maki, a kanji that also describes a decorative Japanese lacquering technique that combines shell, metal and ivory.
