  • Pottery question ?

    is this a piece of Native American pottery or modern ? The sherd is very different from the plain ware that I normally find .

      The stirations on the edge in the first photo straight and even spaced . When you mix clay and coil or flatten it you don’t get that kind of pattern either before or after firing. I think.,,

          Good man from Florida might be onto something. I wouldn't have really looked that closely, and assumed it was pottery, but I don't know. Is the grit/texture the same as your normal plainware?

            I always check the color of the clay . Mostly red in my area . But I do find the gray . Went to a creek source to make sure we do have that color and yes right there in the creek .
            I have said this before put it up to the sun for shell or sand reflections .
            Modern clay and porcelain would not have that .
            Plant remnants for older pieces I have read but never found.
