Eric Trine Los Angeles studio
4 / 25

“We light incense or sage every day in the studio. It’s part of my coming-into-the studio ritual. There are all sorts of smells going on, depending on what wood we’re cutting in the shop or if we’re using something that has bad fumes. But I think it’s more of this ritualistic thing: I come into this space, set the backpack down, open up my laptop, light a cone incense thing and let that burn and think “Okay, this is studio time.”
