Willacoochee Check Stamped


This was named by Frankie Snow in south-central Georgia for material that was "semi-fiber-tempered"- that is, fiber-tempered with the addition of sand. This may represent a transition series from fiber-tempered to sand-tempered pottery. Named after the Willacoochee River, this is part of what Snow called the Satilla series.
