You have gotten lots of great info. I rough turn the walls to 10% of the bowl diameter. I soak my bowls for 24 to 72 hrs. I then take them out to flash dry. I wrap mine in a brown grocery sack and cut a opening in the bowl part. Place them upside down on a Wal-Mart cooling rack in a cool, dry place without much air flow. I let them dry from 2 to 4 weeks.
