  Making a Stoneware Teapot


Putting a Hole in the Body

When the body releases from the bat, a hole
is made in it with the needle tool. If this is not
done, as the pot shrinks, the volume of air
trapped inside will force the wall to split open.



Measuring the Lid

The lid is thrown right side up, and then
measured with calipers so that the hole to be
made in the body later will be the same size.
