Plain Band 06


Plain Band 06 is one of the few bands where location defines the band. Plain Band 06 is always located directly on the rim (the protocol is to record it as “exterior”) of the vessel, be it a plate or a tea bowl. As indicated in the picture, Plain Band 06 is executed on the small, flat portion of the rim.
