Maybe I don't understand what you mean by "skeleton" (I keep thinking of
bones :-). With stroke contrast, the inside of a bowl can have a different
shape than the outside, and the left of a stem a different curve than the
right. It's hard for me to imagine what a "humanist skeleton" could look
like without taking this into account.
