I'm with Phil. I like.
I like the some what mono tonal, minimal tonal,approach. I also like that the clay has voice with his works.
I feel more drawn to the form, and I enjoy the japanese aesthetic. I feel like its zen like in its simplicity. Saying more with less! Which is no easy task.

Waiting also
Do clay mfgr's. Control ph of water to control ph of clay.

I'm also thinking does water Impurities affect clay body dramatically. Eg city water vs.. Well water vs collected rain water. Rain water tends to be sweeter, well water tends to have higher minerals especially sulfur, city water has chlorine....., How do these affect clay bodies?

Inquiring minds want to know?

Why does slip need to be alkaline?

Lee he puts drainage hole in foot or kodai so water doesn't pool when placed in dishwasher..
The drainage hole is in foot only and does not affect continuity of body, maybe he will show a foot close up.

There are wari kodai . While not a drainage "hole" like Phil's cups. it would serve purpose and possibly in a more traditional sense.

Mark are you using chasen/ wisk and matcha in yunomi?

This is a new idea I'm working on after seeing similar posted online.. This has slanted koshi. Or hip. Galloway/cushing porcelain cone 6.

I expected this form to be a bit bottom heavy but even it wet state it's feeling somewhat balanced, surprisingly.

And the outside "koshi" dose not match inner contour. Throwing that shape inside seemed odd, and awkward. Given this, surprisingly the form seems to work, from a design perspective. But as we all know things will change as the process continues.
