The pot is then dried in the shade for some time. Following this process, they are then decorated with applied or incised patterns and covered with a red slip. This slip, made of iron-rich clay-like earth comes from a valley further inland and is obtained in exchange for pots. After further drying, the pots are fired. Upon completion of the firing process, the pots are then sprinkled with seawater in which arrowroot has been grated in order to make them more watertight.
