So, I'm liking these coil cups, but I'm not quite sure what is the best foot for them. So far, these are my options...

Pasutti, I am digging image number 6. Something about the form seems really stable and crisp. The coil lines give the pieces a lot of movement by themselves and I'm thinking that they might benefit
from a tighter profile. The crisp(er) forms let the coils be the focus, versus the free(er) forms, where everything is working in the same direction. What do you think?

Pasutti, these rock. I like image #5, maybe because its a lot like the form I frist made when learning to throw off a hump. I spent a lot of time critiquing that tiny little cup, and image #5 looks a
lot like my last cups. I like how the lip is slightly more closed than the others, but not restricting. I also love the diagonal line. What if that line wandered up and down more? or if it shadowed
the lip and they both wandered? or the foot? What if you reversed the textures, so the bottom was coiled (where the cup texture would meet your hand) and the top was smooth (where the smooth lip
meets your lips)? sweet, keep it up!
