Iranian pottery (sometimes known as gombroon) production presents a continuous history from the beginning of Iranian history until the present day.
Fingerprints of primitives in Iran can be seen on relics. The first earthenware was mainly of two types: black utensils and red ones, both were hardly complicated products. Gradually simple earthenware was decorated with by geometric designs. Studying the designs shows us that ancient Iranians were skillful also in designing earthenware and represented their works in a lively and gracious manner. Iran can be called the birthplace of designed earthenware utensils. Designing earthenware in Iran started about 4,000 BC.
Marajó culture was a pre-Columbian era society that flourished on Marajó island at the mouth of the Amazon River, Brazil.
Sophisticated pottery—large and elaborately painted and incised with representations of plants and animals—is the most impressive finding in the area and provided the first evidence of complex society on Marajó.
The ceramic marajoara is a type of ceramic, fruit of labor of the indigenous tribes of the island of Marajó (PA), at the mouth of the Amazon River during the pre-colonial period 400-1400 AD, in Brazil. The period of production of ceramics as sophisticated aesthetically is called "phase marajoara," since there are successive stages in the region of occupations, each of them with a ceramic characteristic.
The ceramic marajoara is generally characterized by the use of red or black paint on white background. One of the most widely used techniques for ornamental ceramics this is the champlevé or high field, where embossed designs are achieved through decal designs on a smoothed surface and then excavating the area unmarked.
