The piece has been hand-built, pierced and decorated with coloured slips and oxides.

It has an irregular sack shape and is coated with a greyish-white slip. The subtle decoration consists of a rectangle outlined in pale orange-brown, chequered with white lines with pin holes at the intersections. This piece owes something to the influence of Gordon Baldwin.
