To make a flat bottle, a round bottle was made first using a spinning wheel, and then the bottle was flattened by tapping both sides. This unique shape, neither flat nor round, is a natural result of the uneven power of tapping hands. This bottle has a flower design with a few petals and a stem on its front and rear sides, and the addition of transparent blue glaze dropping naturally from the shoulder gives a sense of modernity.
