Decorated pot, Sudan

The impressed pattern on this vessel has been produced by impressing with a textile. This is a common method of decorating pottery. The textile would have been impressed on to the surface of the clay before firing. This pot was made in El Fasher, in the Darfur region of Sudan, by a Tama potter, some time before 1936.
