Jomon Pottery


Have you notice the  works showcased in the cabinet in front of the cafeteria? Well, those beautiful works were created by using the coil method and decorative coiling. Coil pottery is greatly influenced by  Jomon Ware. In the Jomon culture, which is over 10,000 years old, women created these pots for practical and religious purposes. The Jomon people , a preliterate Japanese culture, are responsible for the most powerful and dynamic examples of coil work that exist nowadays. Although most of Jomon works appear to be decorative, they served the important function of storing many of the supplies that helped the Jomon people thrive.

Here are some of the works from our peers:
