These sherds generally have a dark slip, orange-brown (5YR 3/3), red-brown (2.5YR 6/6–5/6), brown to brown-black (5YR 2.5/1, 2.5Y 4/1–3/1), sometimes with a slightly purple cast. Where thinner, the slip appears orange (2.5YR 6/6–6/8, 5YR 6/6) or pink (2.5YR 5/4). Frequently they are slightly rough to the touch, even where slipped.
Of the available samples, roughcasting consists of either clay pellets, generally 1.0–2.0mm; or mixed clay pellets and quartz, where quartz is frequently 0.5mm.
