Listening to Stone No. 6
by Queenie Chan

The incense holder is the sixth piece in the Listening to Stone collection. It is inspired by the biography of sculptor Isamu Noguchi.

In its biography, there is a chapter on "making every piece according to the nature and characteristics of the stone," and another on "integrating the form and texture of every stone and sculpting a 'new' form for it, based on its particularities. But first and foremost, one must "Listen," that is, connect with the stone." And so it is.
As is true for people and things, everything has its own qualities and personality, and when placed in the right place, in the right group, and at the right time, one can shine and display one's best personality and "functionality".
But first, one must connect with oneself and listen to one's heart and soul to become aware of one's idiosyncrasies.

What I keep explaining about the above is that I feel there are so many lost souls in this world that we need "time" to reconnect with our own souls.
Feeling calm, reconnecting, and listening to one's own soul is so important in these times.

Ceramic artist Queenie Chan launched éphēlis as a personal project to subvert established standards of beauty.
The subject matter of her work is femininity and intimacy. Her first collection, "Femme," was an exploration of form and function, celebrating the female body and advancing the idea of accepting beauty with its flaws.
Her latest work, "Listening to Stone," was created to encourage a moment of stillness and clarity, encouraging the viewer to slow down and appreciate being.
"Femme," "Holding Stone," "Moon," "Dialogue. "Listening to Stone" collection.
The collection is currently being presented in the following collections.

Incense Washi paper(Incense on Washi paper)
Washi paper incense releases its fragrance even when not lit.
It was created using the advanced technology of the Japanese incense industry.
The technique is to make Japanese paper with natural fragrance by hand,
Each piece is carefully handmade by craftsmen.
The exterior of the box is made of natural paulownia wood.
The paulownia box has excellent insect repellency, and when humidity is high, it expands to make the box airtight to prevent moisture from entering, and when it is dry, it contracts to improve air permeability, making it suitable for long-term storage.
