Three veined leaves serve as the walls for this pod, with their stems acting as a three-legged base. The glazed leaves are convex in shape, but curl at the top near the circular opening of the pod. The leaves' glaze gives them an orangish hue, with darker veins that crawl up the center of the leaf and branch out. The leaves themselves exhibit much depth in terms of color and wash, ranging from a pale yellow in the gaps between the veins, to a burnt sienna in the veins themselves.
