How to make a Lid from an Enclosed Form on the Potters Wheel

How do you make a lid from an enclosed form on the potters wheel? This is a question I get asked often when people see my salt cellars and sugar jars. I've made a new "Quick Pottery" video on the first step to making the enclosed form. You can view it here on Youtube. I hope to make one on trimming the lid soon.

Below are a couple photos of work made using the enclosed form method. These salt cellars and treasure jars will be available on the Asparagus Valley Pottery Trail this April 27th-28th. See the Pottery Trail website for all the details.
