Jeffrey Nichols explains the mechanics that go into making a functional teapot spout.
Today’s video features potter Jeffrey Nichols demonstrating a great
technique for a handbuilt teapot spout. In addition to the technique,
Jeffrey discusses and gives pointers on what makes a teapot spout
function properly. I have made a few teapots in the years I have been
making pottery, and more often than I would like to admit, I’ve had
dribbly spouts. So I am anxious to try out the tips Jeffrey mentions.
The video is a bit longer than most that we show on Ceramic Arts Daily,
but it is packed with good information so it’s worth it to watch it to
the end. I hope you’ll stick with it and then put his tips into
practice on your next teapot. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
