Satsuma pottery is a more than four hundred year old tradition. Like many others, that tradition was born at the end of the 16th century, after Japanese warlords came back from Korea with Korean potters and their techniques to be used to make ware, especially tea ceremony ware, for their private use. After having been exposed at the Paris International Exhibition in 1867, Satsuma pottery became a popular export to Europe and America. And at the World Exposition in Austria, in 1873, the twelfth Chin Jukan exposed two large vases and was instantly recognized as a master potter, further helping the commercialization of the Kyushu ware.
The fifteenth Chin Jukan is also a nationally and internationally recognized craftsman. He graduated from Waseda University in 1983, and went on to study ceramics in Italy and South Korea. The Chin Jukan kiln has been visited by members of the Japanese Imperial Household and the President of South Korea; a proof of its importance in the history of the craft and as a symbol of the relations between the two cultures.
This wonderful vase features the famous, finely crackled Satsuma porcelain, decorated by hand with motifs of flowers painted in a rich palette of warm colors, including gold.
