My new favorite thing to make is lidded pots. They are probably the most complex thing I have learned to make so far and I made three of them during my most recent pottery class.
The knobs were thrown on the lid itself. So, after the lid was formed, I put a round piece of clay on the top of the lid and formed it on the wheel. It was really daunting at first but a lot of fun once I got the hang of it. The one thing I do need to get better at is fitting the lid to my pot. These were all a little too small.
