I've realized through this design process that working in 2D simply doesn't work for me.
I have to see a form, to feel it, to spin it around and get all the angles.
I carved these little guys out of foam the other day; I think the one of the left side will be the winner for the teapot, although it will be more rounded.
A few days I got started filing the edges of what will be my lap-seam vessel, but had to stop short after I sliced open my fingers too many times.
Tuesday will bring progress.
