Within the Hohokam ceramic tradition, the pottery of the Sacaton phase (A.D. 900-1150) exhibits the greatest diversity of vessel shape and size. The prevalence of large containers probably reflects a period of suplus crop production and population increase. Design is more flamboyant during this phase, but workmanship is undisciplinced, especially during the latter part of the period. It is evident that Hohokam ceramics were in a state of flux, with quality giving way to quantity. The scroll form and its variations on this motif are found in Hohokam ceramics of all periods. The sharp turn of the vessel at the base, called the "Gila shoulder," indicates that the piece is Sacaton style.
