Boat Shaped Kogo
This boat or "fune" kogo was also made by hand. A piece of clay is moulded into shape and left to stiffen. The lid piece is then cut free and the inside scooped out to make the receptacle for the incense. The lid is also scooped out and a small rim made with thin slabs of clay attached inside to secure the lid to the hull of the boat.
