Jian Shui clay is extracted from the local "five color" mountain, in which the soil has abundant deposits of red, yellow, purple, white, and brownish clay content, which the locals refer to as "Wu Se Tu", meaning five color soil. Iron is the richest element in this clay, so a lot of Jian Shui teapots have a black color or are mixed tones, featuring reddish or copper tints. Jian Shui Purple Clay Pottery was established during the Tang dynasty, about 1200 years ago, and is one of the four famous Chinese potteries.
