This earthen bonsai pot was made with soil containing very little iron. After firing this leaves the pot colored white with a yellowish tint. For these reasons the pot is called hakudei, or white mud. On the trunk of the pot we see pictures of crimson camellia and white plum blossoms along with a black bird thought to be a crested myna.
