Banko teapot colour

Hi fellow masters and tea lovers,

This teapot is claimed to be made of Banko.

Is it normal for Banko to be grey?

Isn't it supposed to be purple or black?

Thanks.

Banko can refer to the city where the potter resides. This artistic nippon page has more information and examples of pots that are legitimately considered banko pots without being made from “banko” clay.

I think this is a result of taking photo with flash.
