If you are a potter, how many times have you found a lid stuck to a teapot or lidded box due to the glazing? How many times have you wiped off glaze that you should not have wiped off? How many times did you loose a lovely teapot because you had to break the lid loose from the teapot?
These pictures below are examples of the glazing challenges that potters experience when making anything with a lid on.
In the online class, Connie discuss glazing challenges and shows easy techniques for preparing pots for successful glazing.

I was captivated when you mentioned that the teapot can break if the glazing is not right. My friend wants their pot to be painted beautifully. I should advise her to hire an expert in pottery painting to achieve their desired outcome.

Yes, a teapot or covered jar can break if there is any glaze where the lid sits on the body of the pot. The break is caused by trying to force the lid off and the pot may break before the spot where the lid is glazed to the pot separates.
