Most pots made during the Tchefuncte period were plain. In fact, about three-quarters of the fragments had no decoration. Some, however, had decorations on their surface. These include lines drawn on the wet clay (A-D), punctates pushed into the wet clay (E-H), and designs where a tool was rocked back and forth across the surface (I-K). A few vessels also had decorations on the lip of the pot (below).
