clay, slip and paint
Radical changes marked the transition from the pottery of the Sacaton phase to that of the Classic period (A.D. 1200-1400). Vessel sizes were greatly reduced, and the graceful flared rim bowl passed out of existence. Decoration became much simpler with figurative form and small repeated elements practically disappearing. The weakening of the vital Hohokam ceremic tradition may have been caused by the Hohokam's association with the Salado culture and the ensuing emphasis on the production of polished and smudged red pottery.
