I am pretty new at pottery. I love to work on the wheel, but lately I have become rather frustrated with the bowls I have made cracking at the bottom. I was told to run your finger back and forth across the bottom and have done this...still cracking. Could someone please help!
What is the shape of the carack, "S" shaped, or around the edge of the foot ring in a crescent? Is it one crack, or a few short ones?
I've attached a copy of the one bowl that I put patch stuff from the pottery store in...not so pretty.
