teapot spout crimp

I am attempting to make teapots in earnest. Having
looked at hundreds and hundreds of teapots in person
or photos I know that I am drawn to those quirky
spouts that seem to have a crimp or pinch in them
(e.g. seen on several Warren Mackenzie teapots).

I have had no luck searching the clayart archives and
various publications for a description of the process.
For example, is the crimp made immeadiately after
throwing, after the spout has set a little, or after
it has been attached?

If anyone is willing to share their technique, it
would be greatly appreciated.
