Ara the altar takes its name from a small constellation depicted in early illustrations as an altar with rising smoke, incense, or sacrificial offerings.
The Incense Altar represents an ancient roman altar, hand carved and engraved in wax before being cast in recycled brass in the UK, using the ancient art of lost wax casting.
A weighty, solid, versatile object, The Incense Altar is designed for offering and burning incense sticks or cones, and can also be used as a paperweight or talisman around the home.
With a bushed finish, leaving the altar pale gold in colour.
Accompanied by a European hemp pocket, designed by Lauren, ethically made in the UK with minimal waste, and naturally dyed by hand.
