This pot features an ornamented rim made by using a "coggle" or "roulette". This is a round clay or wooden wheel with textured decoration on it, that is run around the pot just before the potter takes the pot off the wheel. It can be used for roping or dentil motifs under a rim, or to add texture to the full rim. A slightly smaller scale of the same rope motive is used for making a collonade foot, which adds a bit of balance and formality to the form.
