The following are process shots for a tea pot I'm currently working on. It starts as a 12" disk of copper. Well really it starts with an idea then a paper pattern.
The paper pattern.. Based on 12
The foot or base is worked into the 12" disk..There will never be a better time or another time to get the base.
The base is a concave you are looking at the outside of the teapot. anneal
Close up first folds.
exterior 2 nd folds close up
interior second folds
The form begins to come in exterior from bottom
interior as the form closes in.
It's beginning to become a teapot. I'm working on the lid more today. spouts and handles too. Basic form is there. I'll post more as this piece gets completed...Much more metal work to come as we get back to metal and away from all of the writing.
