This character is a fusion of two characters which were separate in small seal script.

“earthenware”
of this sense was 𠙾-like in the small seal script, with three vertical straight strokes on top, representing the pictogram (象形) of a bambooware. This became the current form in the clerical script.
“one-year field”
The glyph of this sense is composed of 𡿧 (“calamity”) and (OC *l'iːŋ, “field”). It is also a variant character of (OC *ʔslɯː).
“steroid”
This character was practically obsolete before it was revived as a modern translation for steroid. It is also a pictogram (象形) in this sense; the upper part represents the three side chains on the ring system, and the component represents the tetracyclic core of steroids. See the image on right.
