Surface Treatment: Most commonly the exterior surface treatment appears to have been executed by beating the vessel with a paddle wrapped with material similar to a leather thong (no twists are evident on the fiber). Other impressions suggest a wooden padded with linear incisions carved into it was used to beat the vessel surface.
