It appeared in Sumer at the same time, but Sumerian society advanced more quickly than that of Aegean countries: as a result, Mesopotamian art became the leading producer of fine pottery. At the same time, the patterns became more complex and extended to all areas of the vessel.These early forms were all handmade and undecorated although Greek potters gradually introduced various decorative effects using black and red pigments to create what is sometimes called Rainbow ware. Then human figures were included in the ornamentation, with images of chariot processions, battles, funerals and other scenes.The former preferred a simple red monochrome with occasional rectilinear patterns based on vertical or diagonal lines, while Cretan (early Minoan) potters specialized in highly polished ware: any decoration was typically incised. And although other centres of pottery production sprang up, (notably in Corinth), the Athenian-led Attic school remained dominant.For more about early abstract motifs used in European art, see: Prehistoric Abstract Signs 40,000-10,000 BCE. Oriental Style of Greek Pottery (c.725-600 BCE) The renewal of contacts and trade links between Greece and the Middle East (especially the city-states of Asian Minor, modern day Turkey) had a great influence on ceramic design, and it was now Corinth who led the way.There was no general style or convergence between local schools. During the Late Geometric period (770-725 BCE), some historical references appear, with representations of events from Greek mythology.The principal centres of pottery production were Thessaly and Crete. This use of figurative design spread to all areas of ancient Greece except Crete, where abstract motifs continued to prevail. Geometrical ceramic art flourished in the 9th and 8th centuries BCE.

Protogeometrical vases are one of the earliest types of Greek visual art to survive, since the sculpture, architecture and mural paintings of this period have disappeared. During this time, the more secure setting of Athens caused it to become the new Greek centre for ceramic ideas and development, which consisted mostly of recycled Mycenean pottery, known as Submycenean ware, followed by a more orderly style known as protogeometric, characterized by designs using precise concentric circles. Minoan pottery had much more sophisticated ornamentation, greater artistry in its designs and use of colour, and was exported widely around the eastern Mediterranean. An example is Kamares ware, a style from Phaistos, which was made on a wheel and decorated with red and white floral and geometric designs on a black background.
