How to Make a Ceramic Teapot

First of all, you have to learn how to make a jar. Then you have to learn how to attach a handle to a surface of the clay. In order to make a teapot, you are going to learn how to make a handle and attach it with the surface. Before we even get started, make sure you have your bulk of clay, which is most likely going to be our jar body, make sure you have your handle and your spout clay, and make sure you have your lid clay.

 Step 1

First, let’s do our basic job. Put the clay on your wheel and make the jar body out of it. Once you complete that, you have to acquire an accurate measurement. You can use a caliper because they are fairly simple to the user. Simply cross them, measure the inside of your pot, and once they almost touch the edges, then you can turn your calipers around. Twist the little knob and secure the adjustment.

 Step 2

Now, start making the lid of the teapot according to that measurement. After making that, determine the thickness of the lid. Once you build that, you have to now focus on making the handle. You can attach the handle just in the same way as you were attaching it with the mug.

 Step 3

You can go easily just score and slip both sides, just like you are attaching it to a mug. Find a place on the pot in which you find the most comfortable place to hold, then score and slip to make sure that there is a good amount of internal bonding. Add some slips at both ends and mash these two parts together like hormone-filled teenagers. Make the ends smoother by using a brush or your finger and let the attachment dry. Now make some holes and attach the spout with the teapot. That’s it; finish it off by putting it inside of your oven. Your homemade teapot will be ready then.
