Potted in a delicate size, with a flat rim, a straight mouth, a short neck and bulging shoulder tapering down to connect the foot ring, the pot is covered in clair-de-lune glaze with a short stop at the foot, leaving the bottom exposed; the dark biscuit looms along the rim to present a light brown colour, like being wrapped by a copper coat; the body is applied with a thick glaze with a greyish blue tint, reminding of the clear sky after a tempest; the joint area between the neck and the shoulder appears with bright gloss, as well as the edge of the belly; the foot ring is left unglazed to expose its dark brown biscuit; and the interior of the bottom is also covered in glaze partially.
