Colour conflict in southeastern pottery (9)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

stoneware

Here is my best explanation:

'pottery' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'colour conflict in southeastern' is the subsidiary indication.

'colour' becomes 'tone' (tone is a kind of colour**).

'conflict' becomes 'war' (war is a kind of conflict).

'in' means one lot of letters goes inside another.

'southeastern' becomes 'se'.

'tone'+'war'='tonewar'

'tonewar' inserted into 'se' is 'stoneware'.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for stoneware that I've seen before include "collection of pottery", "Pottery" and "Type of pottery".)
