There is an excellent series of photographs of a DOMED LID being thrown
,right side up, in the book Pottery, the technique of throwing, by the
English potter John Colbeck; pages 114-115. This book was first published in
1969, but you may find it thru interlibrary loan.It is a very complete book
of functional throwing technique in the English tradition. (cost me $10 in
I liked the opening; "Throwing itself is an incomplete process.It is only
part of the larger process of pottery making." Amen. Lori Pierce

This technique is hard on the finger nails . One opens up a
doughnut and pull up then close over .
A knob can be thrown at the same time . the gallery is turned
later , by putting the lid upside-
down in a chuck.
I prefer to throw lids off the hump .
