Satsuma ware includes white Satsuma porcelain and black Satsuma which is produced using coloured clay and iron glazes that turn black or brown after firing. In contrast to white Satsuma being mainly used as official ware, black Satsuma was used for daily use by people, earning the nickname kuromon (‘black thing’).
