Master Lin Gim-long, born in Liujia, Hsinchu County, is a craftsman specializing in hand-made incense sticks, a career he has had for over 40 years. Lin works with plant powders in a hot and stuffy factory to make the incense sticks. He says the key is to fan them out on a surface and coat each stick evenly with the powder. He said that with growing environmental awareness and the shrinking religious population, the use of incense sticks could gradually transition away from religious ceremonies.
