Paste/Temper: The paste is typically compact, clayey and contorted, containing 30 to 60 percent of a crushed (2 to 5 mm) quartz, granite, or gneiss. The sherds break with a characteristic blocky to angular fracture.
Surface Treatment: The surface treatment of the coiled vessels is either a wicker fabric of a medium width (warp diameters 2 to 4mm, woof diameters 1 to 2 mm), or cord marked. Fabric impressed is far more common than cord. Many examples exhibit a rich black finish all over the exterior, suggesting purposeful carbon smudging.
