Footed Vessel
Found in Tenri City, Nara, Nara period, 8th century (Important Cultural Property)

From the Asuka period (593–710) onwards, the shapes of earthenware vessels and the combinations they were used in changed drastically. This change was brought about by the growing prominence of Buddhism and the increasingly common use of written characters. Earthenware vessels from this period reflect influence from metal Buddhist implements, and sue stoneware began to be shaped into items for writing.
