Most of the work on this Tea Pot last week was in this part.
It server as the lid to the tea pot and the diffuser for the tea.
It begins as this small raising. View is from the bottom. The do-nut area will be drilled with many holes.
View from the interior. This will receive a triangular lip and be hinged to it's cover.
That cover needed a knob. These are fold formed pieces that were either considered or were the inspiration for the knob.
This project is based on 12 some of these pieces are based on five
This one is based on six..it works with this project.
Top view diffuser in place.
Side view pieces are just resting in place.
another view. At this point I'm beginning to consider possible contrasts in surface and color. There have become two interiors to consider. Work this week will include getting rid of the wings on the body of the pot, some fabrication on the diffuser. Three large portions exist on paper, the carrying handle, the pouring handle and the spout. It is time for them to get into 3D It's almost hammer time.
It's also time this piece gets a name....or at least names begin to suggest themselves. Feel free to suggest one, if you like.
