Ikebana Vase



- Ikebana Vase Collection -

Japan is to be considered the source of the oldest recorded ceramics in the world. The story of Jomon ceramics, whose earliest examples date back some 15-16,000 years, is strange and compelling: their creators formed their first clay vessels before their people had discovered the essential technologies of agricultural production and basic metallurgy.

Japanese Vases Origin

Japanese vases origins can be traced back to the same period that gave birth to the Shinto religion, Japan's indigenous faith.

For Japan, the history of ceramics is the history of its belief systems, its cultural values, its wars and dynasties - more or less, it is the history of its people.
