の and で particle

Was reading a jap fable and there was that sentence: つち で できたつぼ と どう の つぼ が、かわ を ながされて いきました. First time で was used to mark that is was made out of clay and second time の to mark the copper respectively. So i don' get the reason for the that Can someone explain me pls.

つちでできたつぼ implies it was made with clay. Dekiru is a verb in the past sense here, and verbs can be used as adjectives, while で means "with"....

And then the other is like... pot OF copper... どうのつぼ... posessive particle.

Unsure if this explanation is clear but hope it helped a little.
