Cabin Incense Burner
The Cabin Incense Burner was inspired by my friend’s obsession with collecting Incense of the West incense burners, and I wanted to try my hand at designing and fabricating my own cabin design burner.
Incense of the West Burners
For my cabin burner, I wanted to do a “mod” take on it, and I was interested in creating a mix of modern (ish) architecture elements with a classic log cabin look.
Rough ideation sketching lead me to the design I moved forward with, which blended a classic log cabin look with modern principles.
Process: I 3D modeled my final sketch and 3D printed it. After post processing the print, I created a mold from the master using Smooth-On silicone. With the mold, I poured thin layers of plaster until I built up enough thickness, allowing each layer to dry before pouring another. Using this method, I was able to create the piece with a hollow center, which was pertinent for it being a functional incense burner.
