Pottery with raised design was made by pinching or attaching clay bands to the outer surface of a vessel to create various designs, patterns, or motifs. This type of pottery was used during the Korean Neolithic period, from 6000 to 3500 BCE, particularly in the eastern and southern coastal regions of the peninsula. This bowl with raised design features a band of triangles along the mid-body, with raised decorations on the inside and outside of the triangles. The triangles are filled with a dense pattern of diagonal lines, a characteristic motif of Neolithic pottery from the southern coast of Korea. Notably, this pattern is believed to have been transmitted across the sea to Japan, as its influence can be seen on Jomon pottery.
