Romero has merged traditional forms and techniques with contemporary art imagery. Traditional techniques include hand coiling, polished slip decoration, and a spirit break in the rim. The 14 karat gold rim is certainly contemporary, as is the inscription along the rim in gold: Chongo made and painted me 'Return of the Saucerman'. This work is currently on display, come see it up close and study the details.
