These beautifully handcrafted ceramic incense bowls are marked with the insignia of the Mountains and Rivers Order, the Zen tradition developed and maintained at Zen Mountain Monastery. They were made just for us by Elizabeth Nields, a local potter, whose beautiful ceramics can often be found as serving vessels in the ZMM dining hall.
We partnered with Elizabeth to make these bowls for next year's 44th anniversary of the Monastery and hence are pricing them at $44. However, until the end of 2023, we currently have the bowls on sale for $42.
Fill one of these bowls with our incense ash and offer a stick of incense of your choosing before beginning your meditation period or any other activity.
Please note that the bowls vary slightly in size. Some are adorned with an extra glaze. You can see the range in the photos. The differences are subtle enough, and each is one of a kind. So, it would be difficult for us to honor requests for a particular variation.
Average size: 2.75" diameter x 3.5" high.
