Detail: Ceramic production in Japan began in the Jōmon period, going back some 16,000 years. Starting from this primitive pottery, Japanese ceramics developed by learning kiln production and glazing techniques introduced from China and Korea, continuing to receive strong influences in design and form. On the other hand, one can see a new stylistic esthetic created within the original Japanese culture, in vessels for tea ceremony, flower arrangement, and festivities in the later periods. The history of Japanese ceramics will be surveyed, hoping to introduce the evolution of the beauty captured in ceramics.
