It's hard to tell, but for the cup on the top, do the ridges still appear lighter than the divots? I like that affect and want to try to use it to my advantage.

Yes, the glaze is usually thinner on peaks than crevices, it's the way of gravity. You can actually see this on white glaze as well, but since it is white, it's not as noticeable. What kind of designs do you have in mind?

I think that the "gravity" effect is very nice, it looks more hand made and it gives a nice texture! Nice, nice!

Is there any plan to add black porcelain to the repertoire of materials?

we've explored the fine porcelain option, but haven't found a suitable price point yet. If you have ideas of technologies we could try, please let me know. Otherwise, the black ceramics have came out really well, you could give that a try!
