The fine, undistorted, sheet-form ceramics fired by Kato Zenji the Third of Seto garnered high praise at the Japan Exposition of 1895. The porcelain panels were decorated with delicately-executed Japanese-style paintings, mainly in locations such as Tokyo and Yokohama, for export. A high level of technical expertise was required to produce and decorate panels that were semipermanent and less likely to fade or deteriorate, which can still be appreciated many decades after their creation. See the unchanging beauty of porcelain panels from the Meiji period through to the Showa period at Yokoyama Art Museum.
