Shiro Satsuma

Satsuma ware is a type of Japanese pottery originally from Satsuma province in Kyusyu island of Japan. I don't like its decorated version, but the white glazed one called Shiro Satsuma is just beautiful. Since it was for daily use of Samurai life, the design is simple and sophisticated. The picture below is an antique Shiro Satsuma teapot I shot at the exhibition, and you can see its micro cracks on the surface of the glaze which is one of the characteristic of the pottery.

This one below is also an antique Shiro Satsuma I take in different place. I think this one is a Sake server, but no idea of the reason for its unique geometric form like Tofu.
