  1. Thanks for all of the tips! I think I´ll go for a disc. Very helpful as always, I appreciate all answers! So, the bowls are stable after I have trimmed them, and I always test them on a flat board before glaze fire. Most are okay, but some of them get a slight wobble. This never happens to my smaller bowls or tea bowls. I might try a double ring, yes!

For some reason, som of these bowls came out with a slightly wobbly foot ring (the width is not the problem, it is just not 100% flat). Never had this problem before, but I suppose I just have to do a better job when trimming. Anyways, there would be such a shame to discard these slightly wobbly bowls: is there a way to flatten the foot rings? It is stoneware, so I suppose regular sand paper would not get me very far. Would be super thankful for any help!

It looks like it is solid and not going anywhere, but there are tiny visible crackles, like the ones you get with crackling glazes. I cannot feel these with my finger. Does anyone have an idea of why the crackling happens? Is this something that can happen to
