If you take the word “Earth” and drop the first and last letter’s you have three letters remaining that spell the word “ART.” Ceramics and Pottery was the very first functional art form known to man. The earliest known ceramic objects are Gravettian figurines such as those discovered at Dolni Vestonice in the modern-day Czech Republic. The Venus of Dolni Vestonice (Vestonika’ Venuse in Czech) is a Venus figurine, a statuette of a nude female figure dated to 29,000-25,000 BCE. The earliest known pottery vessels may be those made by the Incipient Jo-mon people of Japan around 10,500 BCE. The term “Jo-mon” means “cord-marked” in Japanese. This refers to the markings made on clay vessels and figures using sticks with cords wrapped around them. Pottery, which dated back to 10, 000 BCE has also been excavated in China. It was independently developed in North Africa during the tenth millennium and in South America during the seventh millennium. It is believed that the earliest pottery wares were hand –built from clay tempered with sand, grit and crushed shells.
