Meet our Red Clay Chiminea, your Palo Santo’s new home.
Our Chiminea hut is made from our very own Mother Nature’s red clay, designed to bring warmth into your home.
Each Chiminea is hand thrown in Los Angeles by the incredible ceramic artist, Rita Valencia of Iron Hare Clayworks. Emily worked with Rita to create a design that she fell in love with. It came down to a mix of mid-century modern meets earthy.
Made with 100% true terra-cotta red clay, fired in Terra-Cotta traditions, and well-formed by hand.
“At the center where I go for retreat and practice in the mountains of Tehachapi, there is a daily "smoke offering on the mountain" where a large "Sang Khang" – Tibetan for chiminea –is loaded with dried branches that have fallen from the tall pines. The fire is set, and then once these have burned down, green sprigs of fir and incense gathered from the local trees and shrubs is added to create an aromatic smoke. This smoke is blessed and becomes an expression of gratitude and compassion. Naturally I wanted a Sang Khang for my home practice but most that were commercially available were much too big and would not be appropriate for the already polluted city. I searched in vain for one that would be small enough, so I decided I would make one.” – Rita Valencia

Incenses – The history of incense burning dates to 6000 years ago. Burning incenses are proven to ground the mind, body & spirit. They also stimulate creativity and open the mind
To start a relaxing ritual, place your material of choice inside the chiminea, light, blow out flame & enjoy. Allow the scent to transform your space.
Emily lights her chiminea every morning during her meditation practice – it is always burning throughout her home. Allow our chiminea to assist you in zenning out at any hour of the day.
