Clay Agarbatti/Incense holder

Howdy everybody?? Tuesday, waving between Monday blues and routine chores. We are in Lakshmi puja season(sravana masam). Every year  i plan something good for puja, this time got a bit of time ahead and prepared this silver clay Agarbatti holder :)) Why Agarbatti holder??
I have a small silver holder which i never use as it doesn't hold sticks properly and feels lazy to clean powder on floor *sigh* For a make-do i have been using a lovely glass which has become everlasting in my puja room. So i have looking for a big holder which doesn't leaves any mess, what could be more exciting and beautiful than handmade one!!! Here is what i did with clay
  • Rolled out clay
  • Cut them with leaf cookie cutter
  • Made a flower center piece
  • Arranged big ones first, then medium and later small
  • Twisted little bit of tit bit clay leaves 
  • Brushed on silver color which matches my puja room ;)
Doesn't it sound like exciting and easy, gape at my glittery silver flower :))


This aroma and smoke from this gorgeous clay flower, fills divine and room freshening fragrance to every nook..


Leave ur aromatic comments :))

That was a smart idea ! I generally put the agarbattis in a banana. Very crude thing to do!!

You got it so beautiful Kala, do you have to burn the clay?
Have you tried making a Ganesha? I think you will do it well:-)

Nice piece and the design is also pretty. Really such a innovative type of incense holder with an extra benefit of room freshening medium.
