Fabric, firing, and surface description
Slightly granular fabric with angular medium light and dark chunks and frequent small to tiny varied bits. Fabric is overfired to pale green in comparison to usual firing for form. Thin wash is now pale red. There are no signs of burning, though exposure to heat after firing could explain the unusual color of fabric and slip.
