The new incense altar is PIGMENTARIUM’s novelty: a round and color-changing porcelain stand designed by one of the most important representatives of contemporary Czech porcelain design Daniel Piršč. It shows how porcelain can develop in the hands of real masters – turning into an object with such aesthetic to be appreciated and admired even if not being used for its original purpose.
The oval stand of the size of a human palm is made with two different openings to insert incense sticks. Both openings or almost entrances are inspired by the idea of soft material and the dynamics of the object entering it: One is a progressing wave and the other a vertical fall into the interior of matter. Using a surface plating technique (the same Daniel Piršč is also using for his famous porcelain 3D wallpapers) the stands will be available in two colors: blue and pink. However, due to the shape of the object the color will keep changing depending on where and how you place it or what lighting is being used. The variation of shades is going from gold to green – letting the metallic surface of the stand shine impressively.
