A Little Manufactured Desire
Did you wake up without the wants? Let me fix that for you...
Manufactured Desire is a regular feature in which I don’t buy the crazy shit I find for sale on the internet.
What’s the main difference between this edition of “Manufactured Desire” and the last one? I actually kind of want this stupid thing.
From the rich freaks at Catbird NYC, I give you…
SETSUKO CAT INCENSE BURNER
From the website:
Created by Astier de Villatte in collaboration with Countess Setsuko Klossowska de Rola, a painter (and widow of the painter Balthus).
[This is a good moment to look up Balthus. Oh RIGHT. THAT Balthus.]
Handmade in the tradition of great 18th century Parisian studios, with clay sourced from the quarries in the Paris Basin. It takes skilled artisans about two weeks to make a single Astier piece.
Set the incense in the base of the cat, watch it languidly pour from it's [*cough* sic *cough*] mouth.
Go go, smoking kitty.
[Thank god they said it so now I don’t have to.]
Remember, everyone, that a dream is just an online wishlist your heart makes… Go go, you smoking kitties.

I am all about kitschy censers! A little high-end for my taste, but a treat for the eyes. :-)
