Description

Kogo (香合). A small lidded ceramic or wooden container for the incense that is added to the charcoal fire during the charcoal-laying procedure.

A Kogo can be made in many shapes and forms. From simple round to cherry blossom petal shape, an octagon, various animal shapes, moon shapes, etc. Incense from the Kogo is placed in the charcoal fire to create a nice smell as the Sumi gets hotter and hotter. Usually there are about three pieces in the Kogo incense container but only two are placed in the fire, one near the fire and a second one more distant from the fire to start burning later and have a continuous fragrance in the Chashitsu (space of tea ceremony).

Sometsuke is a blue-and-white ware with indigo patterns. On the surface of white pottery, mainly porcelain, designs are painted with cobalt oxide paint gosu, a coat of transparent glaze is applied and the vessel is fired. The sometsuke technique was perfected in China during the Yuan period (1271-1368). Eventually, this technique came to Vietnam, Korea and Japan, and sometsuke full of individuality was produced in many areas. In Japan, the first sometsuke were made in the Genna era (1615-24) in Arita by a Korean potter called Ri Sanpei. As Imari sometsuke it became very popular and was exported.

Ceramic pieces in our store are lead free - they was made for tea ceremony and tea drinking. You should be only concerned of the fact that most of the items was made with traditional techniques and author's glazes - you should not put it in the microwave oven or dishwasher :)

You can worry about lead if you will see very bright red or yellow paint OVER the glaze - the lead is used sometimes to consolidate the paint of this colors.
