Teapots, more drawings and cross-sections. i’ve always found they’re my favourite forms to sketch out, be it the way lids sit, how the handles attach or from which angle the spouts pour. there’s so much to consider and i find that drawing helps me eliminate many forms that i simply don’t like, almost as much as helping me find those i like. in reality i dislike most of the forms i draw but perhaps there’s one, just that one, that i really love and i find my hands itching to throw it, to make it physical, a three-dimensional and functional form.
i never draw and take exact dimensions from paper to clay. instead i place these around my wheel, once i’ve found a particular form, and i throw until what i have in my hands matches the normally now clay covered sketches.
