Jomon Pottery from older blog site

 Yesterday I misspoke, thinking I'd included Jomon potters with the March posts last year on my old blog.  But they were before that, in Feb. actually!

This link takes you to some fabulous pictures of ancient pottery, made probably by women.

Look at the rope designs, and remember this was back around 10,000 bc to maybe 300 ad...  And the people. And the forms.

It takes my breath away, thinking of these women firing these pots, using them for what purpose, and having constructed them between tending children, homes, chores, animals, crops...etc.

more info will be here
