Sunday after the workshop I pulled out my first batch of bowls to lightly sand the foot rings. I burnish them with my fingers when trimming them until they're smooth and soft. Unfortunately during the glaze firing the foot ring becomes a bit rough again so I lightly sand it back to smoothness.
I'm pleased with the results on the glazing of this first batch but I'm ready to try some new things. I'll try the changes on the next batch.
