Corrugated Jar

Photograph of Corrugated JarAbout 24 inches (60 cm) high, from the period 1100 to 1300 AD. This vessel shows how the Ancestral Puebloans made pottery by building up coils of clay. The coils often were indented to produce a rippled or "corrugated" surface. Painted pottery was made in the same way, but the coils were smoothed before decoration.

This vessel probably was used for cooking or food storage. Occasional black smudges on the surface are evidence of cooking fires.
