Reserve Plain Corrugated - CA. 1000-1200

This type forms the basis for a number of later types. It developed out of Alma Neck Banded, but usually has much finer corrugations. The advantages of the corrugations are several, including increased heat transfer and dissipation, improved handling, and perhaps increased resistance to thermal shock.

Surface: Red-brown to gray-brown

BOWL-JAR

5-3/4" diameter
Starkweather Ruin
Reserve, New Mexico
LMA 22414/1

This vessel has typical plain corrugations. That they are coiled from the top of the bowl can be seen in the bottom row, where the coil begins.


BOWL-JAR (DEATIL)

5-3/4" diameter
Starkweather Ruin
Reserve, New Mexico
LMA 22414/1

The bowl portion of the vessel is also coiled, giving us a good look at the construction of the bowl-jar.


JAR

Hudson Ruin
Reserve, New Mexico
LMA 22226

Sometimes the plain coiling was smoothed, providing a more rippling surface. This vessel also has a few courses of indented coils at the neck.


JAR

Starkweather Ruin
Reserve, New Mexico
LMA 22410

Another jar with smoothed coils.


JAR

Starkweather Ruin
Reserve, New Mexico
LMA 22410/8

The fine coils of this jar have not been smoothed, and the irregularities in the edges are therefore more apparent, but the vessel is also much easier to handle.


BOWL

Zim Collection
LMA 5435

Like the jar above, this bowl has sharp, fine coils.


BOWL

8" diameter
Starkweather Ruin
Reserve, New Mexico
LMA 22420/2

The top coil of this bowl is indented. This technique will be elaborated in Tularosa Patterned Decorated.


MINIATURE BOWL

3" diameter
Starkweather Ruin
