Develop a personal way of finishing pieces looking at rims and feet/surface and throwing marks/using tools.
Design and perfect making a teapot or any chosen form, set or range.
Throw and adapt forms, joining thrown shapes together.

Focus on working with larger amounts of clay.
Practice throwing and stretching the clay, texturing the clay on the wheel.
