Jomon Pottery Old use, contemporary inspiration

Oldest Pottery in the World The pottery vessels crafted in Ancient Japan during the Jōmon period are generally accepted to be the oldest in the world.

They are not, however, the oldest ceramic objects, which are figurines such as the Venus of Dolní Věstonice discovered in what is today the Czech Republic

Venus of Dolní Věstonice

Characteristics • The majority of Jōmon pottery has rounded bottoms and the vessels are typically small. • Later Jōmon pottery pieces are more elaborate, especially during the Middle Jōmon period. • The name Jōmon itself means “rope-patterned”.

Jomon Pot 3000-2000 BC, from Chiyonohara. Tokyo National Museum. Jomon pots were hand-turned, not made on a wheel, and marked with cord impressions. Cord marking has a practical, as well as an esthetic, affect - it prevents cracking when the pot is fired.

Flamboyant Jomon Pot 3000-2000 BC, from Umataka Tokyo National Museum. Pottery like this raises profound questions about cultural identity and difference in early Japan. Its baroque decoration contrasts wildly to the Yayoi aesthetic, of elegant simplicity, that has dominated Japan ever since.
