Teapot Lids

I think my photos yesterday might have been a bit deceptive…I got several questions so here’s my attempt at an answer. Below is a before and after photo from the side. It is a very shallow bowl with a big flange and a little ‘spout’ which prevents the lid from falling when the tea is being poured. When it is leather hard I invert it (as seen here), trim it and then add a thrown knob…it is a much softer look than would result from a carved knob. I’m hoping that the curve of the lid carries the same line that the curve of the body has.
