Satsuma is probably one of the best known names in the complex field of Japanese ceramics; yet surprisingly little has been published on this subject either in Japan or the West. This innovative book traces the origins of Satsuma pottery from its simple beginnings in the 17th century to the exotically decorated wares of the late 19th and early 20th century. There are over 200 color photographs of examples drawn from important private and public collections around the world. This unique combination of descriptive text and superb illustrations guides the Satsuma collector or enthusiast through the maze of pottery shapes, decoration and usage. Included in the book is detailed information on the lives and works of the Satsuma craftsmen, with photographs of their marks to aid the student and connoisseur with identification.
