The characters she de are painted on the side on black calligraphy, which translate as “generosity” or “selflessness.” She de encapsulates the idea that by sharing more and not being focused on material possessions, you in turn receive more immaterial wealth from the community.

About Yixing Clay

Yixing clay comes from Yixing County in Jiangsu Province. This type of clay is prized for its high levels of iron. Many variants of yixing clay with different characters are sourced from different-colored layers in the soil. Natural colors include various shades and gradients of red, yellow, and purple-brown.

Like all of our yixing clay products, this pot is unglazed. The natural clay remains its original color. Yixing clay absorbs aromas easily, so just rinse it off with boiling water instead of washing with soap.
