While the greenware form of the bowl was trimmed to very smooth surface, the final bowl is quite sandy and scratchy after firing. Quite a nice contrast against the smooth glazed parts, but always need to remember to use a placemat underneath so it doesn't scratch the table.
Slab plate. Rolled out flat to about 4-5mm thick, cut to size, then gently press into paper plate. 3 out of 6 plates cracked. So either the plates were rolled out too thin, dried too fast or combination of both.
