Cochleafors A.K.A. Snail to Teapot

Chapter 8
This chapter will look closely at the Transfiguration spell of Cochleafors, also known informally as Snail to Teapot.

The word is derived from Latin, cochlea meaning "snail", and fors (a suffix often used in transfiguration spells) for "chance, luck, fortune". It is the incantation used in Snail to Teapot exercises, and is pronounced co-k-lee-a-forz.

Looking back at our categories in Chapter 1, this spell falls under the Transformation Transfiguration branch. It is used to transform a snail into a teapot. This is one of the most basic Transfiguration spells and is commonly practiced in all beginner Transfiguration classes.

The spell itself does not cast any light or noise, but strictly transforms a snail into a teapot. The wand movement necessary is to wave the wand thrice and speak the incantation.

Here is a diagram on how the Transformation process should look:
