The glazes used to make black Satsuma ware were limited to black, brown and soba-coloured glaze with a tint of green up to the post-war period. In recent years, however, many creative ideas for vessels using vibrant colour glazes have begun appearing.The Chōtarō Kiln in Ibusuki makes a variety of vessels that have glazing effects that resemble floating ice, waterfalls and other patterns.
