Our Ceramic Cremation Urn in Late Jomon Style is crafted after the fashion of ancient pottery from Japan's oldest known civilization, the hunter-gatherer culture of the Jomon people. Hand made by a Washington ceramic artist.
The vase is elaborately decorated on the top half with stylish designs by the artist, both inside and out, while the bottom half is contrastingly plain. The ashes are placed inside the lower half of the urn, which is internally capped with a ceramic lid.
Inspired by wares made by Japan's oldest known civilization, the Jomon (ca. 2500-B.B.C.), one of the most recognizable characteristics of these ceramic burial urns is the swirling, dynamic decoration on the extended rim. It is generally supposed that this pottery style was used for ritual purposes due to the predominance of decoration.
The lower half of the urn is very plain, which accents, by contrast, the exuberance of the top. Jomon ware is traditionally made from earthenware; however this urn is handbuilt using stoneware. A wonderful work of art to adorn your home and honor the memory of a loved one.
