I started out placing the lid into a bowl …thought it might be nice to curve it, after looking at it on the pot I had other thoughts. I cut off about 1 1/2″ off the middle part (It just made the teapot top heavy). And I decided to go with the same type of lid as the model.
Next it was time to work on the spout. I have that same mindset a carpenter does: measure twice before cutting. So before I actually affixed this to the pot, I arranged it on there temporarily and looked at it from all angles.
Now it is sitting under wraps to dry slowly. Now what?
