Tall vase with thick walls, made from brown clay. The bottom is very small and the shoulder flares out near the top and then there is a short, wide neck. The exterior of the vase is covered with thick rings of clay that coil from the bottom to the top. The exterior surface is shiny from the application of pine resin and there are large areas of dark firing clouds.
