This ewer contains unique designs applied using a paste-on-paste technique that involves creating a design on white clay with a paintbrush. The technique is used to decorate an object with dots or to draw patterns. The design is commonly simplified or distorted rather than a lifelike depiction, and it can be rendered freely since it uses a paintbrush as in making designs in iron underglaze.
