One form prevailed the Mapache Variety, tall-necked jars with outcurving necks and direct rims. The neck and shoulders are decorated by finger-made channels/grooves. These channels are usually U-shaped and are marked with vertical striations at the base of each. On some vessels a white wash was applied below the shoulders and followed with more patterned channels. Others are believed to have been painted, but sherd examples of this are limited. The interior rim has a red-slipped band, and it has been either burnished or hand-smoothed.
