|Over 700 pottery sherds were
found at Hinojosa, fragments of utilitarian pottery including water jars (ollas), bowls, and
cylindrical jars. These are part of the Toyah bone-tempered pottery tradition, although asphaltum from
the coast was used to decorate and mend cracks on a few vessels.
Rim sherds (top), sherds with asphaltum lines used for decoration and to mend cracks (bottom) and an unusual sherd with a polished exterior that was decorated with red-ochre paint. Many Hinojosa sherds had more subtle traces of a red-ochre wash or slip known as "fugitive red."
