Last two days, temperature went to up above 50F, and most snow are melted. Small creeks run like wild river.
Sun felt very nice. Trimming today. Why trim? I like to trim most of my pots. It reduces lots of weight from the ware by trimming away excess of the clay. A foot give a balanced shape to the entire form, from ground up. It needs to be right width (or shape and size) to the opening of the pottery to look nice. If you are handling the hot food or drink, the foot give a bit of cushion from the heat.
Well, I made the replacement for the teapot 3. I enlarge the handle so the lid is easier to remove. This lid has better fit.
