Corrugation is most often found on pots from Acoma, Hopi and Mata Ortiz, although some pots from Santa Clara and Jemez offer bands of corrugation as part of their overall design.
Some modern Acoma and Laguna potters have evolved a style of painting that looks like a more geometric form of corrugation than what is possible using traditional methods for producing a corrugated surface. Traditional corrugation requires a relatively thick clay body while most modern Acoma and Laguna pottery is produced using a thin white clay body.
