Decorative pieces such as figurines in Satsuma ware are called hinerimono, and the majority of such figurines made in profusion were deities and saints like the Kannon. This was the result of the sophisticated sculpturing techniques developed from the Edo period. After the 20s of the Meiji period (1887-) the hinerimono created at the Chin Jukan Kiln were given natural, vivid, and life-like expressions depicting a moment in daily life or an instant movement of an animal.
