An octopus emerges from a large broken jar. Missing sections allow two of the creature’s tentacles to escape, the longer reaching up and scratching the confused octopus’s head. Various shells have attached themselves to the bottom of the jar. A nice touch: the back of the octopus’s head has been decorated with ukibori and the darker stained recesses of the pot stippled.

The himotoshi is formed by two holes to the back of the jar.
