glazed pitchers - before and after
two new tea-pots
I put these together today - I made a very different spout for one - I had seen it on a website so we'll see how it works...
thrown lid with pulled top
To make a lid throw a 'bowl' with a narrow base and a flanged lip. Measure carefully with the calipers to make sure it will fit in the pot. With the lid still stuck to the bat you can see if they fit together by gently setting the lid into the pot.
When the lid is leather soft a top of pulled clay ribbons.
Putting a spout on a tea pot
a spout is thrown and then cut and placed on to the side of the tea pot. The pot itself is just a lidded jar. Pull a handle and off you go! Make sure the top of the spout is higher than the highest level of the tea!
