Ceramic - Pottery Dictionary

by Susan Mussi

TEAPOT: (a) Making the body.

ca: TETERA: (a) Fent el cos.

es: TETERA: (a) Haciendo el cuerpo.

Method of working: To form the main body of a teapot, center the clay, turn it and make a cylinder. Gradually form the size and shape required for the main body of the teapot, to which will be added a spout, handle and lid. Before finishing the neck, clean the inside with a sponge to eliminate the excess water and with a kidney of metal or wood smooth the outer surface.

The sections on teapot have been lent to the dictionary by Ramon Fort from his book El torno, giro a giro.
It can be bought through his web. Link de l’autor – Ramón Fort
