i love those "red clay" jars Bear! What material is it? And was it kiln higher then 1200 F? I am looking for something like this for a while, really good for loose pu and oolong. Your collection are expending like your tea and teapots : ) thanks again for sharing. Cheers

Thanks! Glad you like them!

The clay is a local (Southern California) red stoneware clay with added yellow grog so it can be thrown "big". they were fired to 1242C. Got another jar in this clay waiting to be fired with a green jian glaze.
