Japan has an exceptionally long and successful history of ceramic production. Earthenwares were created as early as the Jōmon period (10,500–300 BC), giving Japan one of the oldest ceramic traditions in the world. Japanese ceramists are famous for their glazes, their secret recipes are passed on from generations to generations.
