Made of clay. The outside is black in color; the texture is very smooth and glossy. The inside is gray in color. The bottom of the bowl does not have the glossy texture; it is rough and porous. Around the rim of the bowl, there is a row of slight indentations which gives the rim a "scallop" effect.
