Urn #122

This urn was inspired by ancient Jomon pottery from Japan's oldest known civilization. It is elaborately decorated on the top half both inside and out. The bottom half is contrastingly plain.

This urn was inspired by wares made by the oldest civilization known in Japan, the Jomon (ca. 2500-1500BC). One of the most recognizable characteristics of these pots is the swirling, dynamic decoration on the rim. It is assumed they were used for ritual purposes due to this predominance of decoration.The lower half of the urn is very plain, giving rise to the contrasting exuberance of the top. This urn has additions improvised by the artist. The container is basically the lower half of the form having a lid with a large elaborate handle matching the external and internal decoration. Jomon ware is traditionally made from earthenware however this urn is handbuilt using stoneware. (Photo #89)
