Satsuma ware (Satsuma-yaki) is a type of Japanese pottery originally from Satsuma Province, southern Ky?sh?. Today, it can be divided into two distinct categories: the original plain dark clay early Satsuma (Ko-Satsuma) made in Satsuma from around 1600, and the elaborately decorated export Satsuma (Ky?-Satsuma) ivory-bodied pieces which began to be produced in the 19th century in various Japanese cities. By adapting their gilded polychromatic enamel overglaze designs to appeal to the tastes of western consumers, manufacturers of the latter made Satsuma ware one of the most recognized and profitable export products of the Meiji period.
