Handmade pottery vessel by Native Americans in Southwest Arizona, Anasazi. The exterior is painted with black pigments on a gray-white background and it tapers into a pointed base. Anasazi pottery was created by coiling clay and smoothing the surface before painting, then finally firing. Anasazi pottery was an invaluable utilitarian item for storing agricultural goods as well as a commodity for trading.
