The large size and elegant design of this pot makes it an excellent centerpiece for entertaining and sharing tea with others. Its round, smooth sides are carved with a few stalks of bamboo in simple recessed strokes that are lightly filled in with a muted red paint. The sparse detailing creates a bold contrast with the unglazed pale clay, showing off the natural clay color of palest yellow-green with black speckles. This pot also has a finely carved strainer bulb set behind the spout to filter leaves without clogging.
