This thick walled pot is made with red clay and a little bit of yellow clay. The design is beautifully embossed on the outside using the Duini method (pile-clay). It is a mainland Chinese yixing pot. The poem embossed on the side is a classical poem about the Yangzi river by Libo. Libo sees sailboats far away on the river, sailing off into the infinity of the horizon.
