7.3 Pottery Manufacture

Vessels represented at this site display a variety of decorative techniques such as stamping [815], incision [748], or the use of external thumb-presses [799]. The handles display a wide range of incised decoration [816]. This served the additional function of preventing the thicker parts of the vessel, of which the handle is one, from splitting during firing. Most of the vessels published here were thrown on a hand- or foot-powered wheel.
