What's the reason for this change in color on this pot? Is it a flaw from firing? (The pot is wet because I cleaned it today.)

Looks like a firing flaw yes.

@steanze @Bok

Thanks, I had not seen this before.

Good chance that this will be my new favorite pot. Shape, clay, workmanship... everything's nice on it, and it even got a ball filter. 8-) The teapot is pretty heavy for the rather small size.

This is one of my favorite bamboo shapes. I have a smaller 130ml version w/ heixingtu. Mine is a bit of a dripper though.

The Square Bamboo is a celebrity dripper!... hahahaha..... use it at half capacity, it will drip a lot lesser.

Cheers!

That pot looks huge, 300 ml?
Red clay ball filter?

Even if the pot is from a later period? I know that these pots were also made during the laser sticker era. There are also pretty decent copies of this pot on eBay (https://www.ebay.com/itm/303568873678 , for example), but I am sure that my pot is from F1. However, I am not sure how old it is.

I have seen your pot on Instagram. It's a beauty. :) My pot is also made of Heixingtu and a bit of a dripper too (but it's manageable).

That eBay pot looks low quality to me.

Heixingtu is from green label period only. If your if F1 than it’s early-mid 80’s

Oh, that's nice. I did not know that. :) So I don't have to worry about the clay.

It would have been easier if you posted them one pot at time to make it clear what bottom belongs to what pot. ;)
The 3rd picture looks like might be a chaozhou (a.k.a. shantou ot chaoshan) pot, possibly vintage.
The two red ones on the 2nd and 6th photo with the similar bottoms look like they might also be some non-yixing clay (chaozhou, taiwanese, ???).
