Pottery was made from clay fired in special pits at temperatures of 600-800 degrees Celsius. At the beginning of the Jomon period, vertical patterns were applied to the pottery using strands of plant fibre applied to the raw clay. Then the fibres were applied horizontally in a herringbone pattern, in the middle Jomon period in a diagonal pattern, and in the late Jomon period in a geometric pattern with a multi-directional arrangement of rope prints. The pattern was applied either by rotating the rope around the vessel or by using a bamboo stick or finger.

Jōmon period pottery was used for cooking food and storing food and water.
