Pit-fired pottery is placed in a hole dug in the ground that is used as a firing chamber A variety of materials (sawdust, salt, cow patties, seaweed, wood, copper, etc.) are placed in the pit with the pottery, and a bonfire is started. The colors and patterns on the finished pottery are a result of fuming and carbonization occurring during the firing The smooth surface comes from burnishing the clay before it is fired. Pine needles and a clay branch were woven onto the vessel.
