Details

Designed by Peru's Anita Contreras, this incense burner brings a pleasant aroma into any home. Crafted of ceramic in the shape of a Christmas tree, the incense burner is elaborated with an Andean twist on the traditional nativity scene. With a hand-painted finish, the tree makes a charming addition to your holiday decor. The star at the top of the tree can be removed so that you can insert a stick of incense (not included). The incense aromas will waft through the myriad holes in the tree.

I love these. I had others by the same artisan and they looked so festive on my wood dowel Christmas tree.

Just received the Dream Catcher today. I loved it when I first saw it online but it was out of stock for a while. It was well worth the wait and it is even more beautiful in person. I am proud to have this piece of art in my home, thank you!

Preserving Traditions

Preserving Traditions

Anita comes from Quinua, a town in Ayacucho famous for its traditional pottery known as Quinua ceramics. Her grandfather was a master ceramist but Anita received most of her training at a workshop in Lima. Over time, the distinctive form of this traditional ceramic art has evolved to include molding. Many of Anita's pieces are made with her own molds. She credits her perfectionism and determination to learn something every day with letting her master this art.

Empowering Women

Empowering Women

Anita is an important representative of our Women's Empowerment badge, in part because her struggle is still ongoing. "I was forced to marry a man I didn't love, and have endured a lifetime of belittling taunts from my husband. Although he mocks my ceramic work, I continue to produce art in hopes that I may one day have the financial stability to leave him." Anita reminds us that women’s empowerment is not a simple destination but a continuous process.
