Typical Meiji Satsuma is a creamy glazed earthenware, covered with miniature decorative motifs, such as women, samurai, Japanese gods or immortals, as well as flowers, animals and landscapes. These images were elaborately produced by hand: painted in enamel, glazed, gilded, and finally fired in a kiln.
Characterized by detailed landscapes and decorative motifs, satsuma ceramics were a new form of intricate artwork. The early artworks were so detailed that one would need the aid of a magnification glass to appreciate the fine miniature paint-work.
