Large round jar with flattened base, added coil ring around shoulder with five coils undulating from rim to half-way down sides; burnished blackware.
Probably a beer pot (ukhamba). Home brewed beer (utshwala) is more than just a sociable drink – it is used to commemorate and honour the ancestors. Traditionally, clay pots would be blackened by smoke firing and then burnishing. Pottery is practiced exclusively by women.
