Strainers, Spouts, Handles…

After hearing how darn cold it is everywhere else right now, I thought I’d go ahead and brave the balmy 43 degrees out in the studio. It still feels like a icebox to me though.

 

All of the teapot bodies and parts hadn’t firmed up enough to confidently hold without consequence, but I don’t get to work this wet very often and it’s a quite thrill. The clay was just stiff enough to hold its shape but still very plastic and almost tacky. The lids are still too wet to trim without damage though.

 

A nearly finished teapot with the strainer lutted into place, and the spout and handle firmly attached.
