The cooking and sago storage vessels (one and same), called au, are made in the varying sizes and shape. Using the coil technique, the Boiken pots are made and decorated entirely by men. Au, are usually decorated with finger or thumb drag marks which are executed in bands running longitudinally around the entire surface of the vessel. The final two or three coils are then drag marked or bonded, depending upon the artistic licence of the potter.
