Woodland Rocker-Stamped Pottery

 

Woodland Rocker-Stamped Pottery

Woodland ceramics, is also characterized by thick, bag-shaped vessels with large amounts of grit temper. Its distinguishing features are a variety of dentate (toothed) and rocker-stamped designs and areas of geometric patterns. Rocker-stamped designs were those produced by rocking a sharp-edged implement back and forth over the clay while it was still soft.
