12th-generation Chin Jukan pointed out four aspects that were vital to the unique beauty of Satsumas ware: the solidly fired hard clay, the fine cracks, the rich and pure-gold paint, and the painting in harmony with the clay surface. The tradition of white Satsuma ware production in pursuit of the beautifully fired clay since the Edo period lives on today.
