Incising on sand / grit-tempered pottery. Incisions are relatively wide and shallow, and designs are usually undulating lines. Also fluting, modeling, punctuating, and appliques sometimes appear with the incising. A number of vessel forms are known, the most common of which are: rounded bowls with in-sloping rims, bowls with vertical rounded sides, bowls with out-curved and straight or out-curved rims, jars with pronounced collars, cylindrical beakers, angled bowls, globular jars with flaring necks, plates or shallow dishes, hooded water bottles, and human effigy vessels.
