This type of unglazed pot is called off-white clay because the soil used to make it contains little iron, resulting in slight yellowish white color when the pot is fired. The front side of this work is decorated with a color clay painting of a grape. Grapes are considered an auspicious pattern that symbolizes abundance due to the way the fruit grows in large bunches and looks heavily laden. Grape designs are used on a variety of containers.
