Ceramic pot
This pot with a small opening looks almost round in shape from the side. Four protrusions are located from the opening edge to the neck of the pot, possibly for line binding and thus makes the pot convenient to carry. No decorative patterns are found on its surface. It is shining black or brown, indicating that this work had been kept inside the house instead of having been unearthed. The black color comes from the accumulated dirt due to the smoke from constant cooking rather than from that of natural clay.
