Fabric, firing, and surface description
Slightly granular fabric fired to red (2.5YR 6/8); occasional very small rounded lime and frequent tiny glistening flakes. Lightly slipped exterior surface is more pale and distinct from fabric. Overall this is likely a regional production related to LRA2 fabrics.
