Bowl made of light grey clay with yellow and black burn marks in spots on both inside and outside. Clay is stone-polished on both inside and outside, though outside is much better polished. Rim curves in at top so that if one were to look at the bowl sideways, the part with the greatest diameter would be in the middle. Oval designs pressed into this section all way around bowl with no space inbetween.
