Build a good Inner pot

A good lid can significantly reduce the cooking time for ISEC.
The pots we have in our local market have imperfections to close the lid on the cooking pot.
We decided to build the cooking pot by a handcraft cooking pot maker.
We realized that their technics is not helping to get a lid that is very regular to close the pot hermetically. A lot of heat is coming out from the lid junction and the pot.
Are there a pot construction material that can be use by ourself to build our pots in order to have an hermetic lid on which we make our own vapors hole?
