Left radical is a Non-General Use character meaning 'put together/pair'. Right radical is a Non-General Use character which originally meant 'earthenware/vessel'; it now means 'tile' in Japanese. This character originally meant 'well buckets', which were apparently commonly used in pairs. Henshall suggests taking the left radical as 'out of' (八), and a variant of 'well' (井), and as a mnemonic: 'Tiles, bottles and jars taken out of well.'
