We get a lot of requests for videos demonstrating how to make a teapot here at Ceramic Arts Daily, and it has always been a difficult request to fulfill because teapots are pretty involved little projects. But I finally found a teapot video that is about as succinct as they come – roughly 12 minutes (not bad, considering the process). And the great thing is, it doesn’t sacrifice detail and good advice. So, sit back and watch this excerpt from Stephen Jepson’s Advanced Throwing Projects and Techniques. When you’re done, you should have a darn good foundation for making your own little teapot. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
