Kana-a seems to have developed from the earlier Lino Black-on-Gray, perhaps under influences from the south. There seems to be only a decorative relationship with the earlier Lino type. Vessels are polished and rarely slipped, and patterns are more sophisticated and include areas of solid black. Exteriors are sometimes painted. The type differs from Kiatuthlanna Black- on-White in that it lacks a slip and organic paint was used.
Paste: Light gray to white
