After making cups and saucers that no one will use I needed to make teapots that could collect dust with them. I'll show you photos of the finished ones next time. You can see one with a spout added in the background, looking naked without it's handle.
|DON'T let the taper expand towards the end if you really mean to use it! Add that to my pet peeves list.|
I could drive you crazy with all the nuance that I believe goes into a 'proper' teapot, but with Ray Finch looking over my shoulder every time I make one, expectations are high!
|I use my cut-off wire to describe the arc that I then cut off with a knife.|
|Then I coax the cut part into a deeper curve, like the opposite of making a lip on a pitcher.|
|This gives it a jaunty angle to apply to the body of the pot.|
"Blogger" really sucked tonight.
