Again you are referring to materials.
Again that is not the issue.
The issue is one of technique and tooling.
In this case materials and relative hardness are a non issue.
I understand you wanting to stay within your comfort zone, but it is not answering my questions.


So can you enlighten us first as to why

Granite? That's interesting, with an overall diameter of 20cm. Can you estimate the neck diameter?

It that a question or a statement?

You seem to know how this form was manufactured.
In that case can you please explain how the undercut was achieved, especially in the granite example.
Is it possible using the Stocks stick and stone method?
If so how exactly?
Regardless of relative materials hardness.
Could you please provide stage by stage drawings which I'm sure you are fully capable of.
