Evening out

No, not tonight.
I turn green and thin and bowls sometimes don't dry quite right. I like the wave, but not always. I find if I turn it upside down and scribe a balanced line off a flat surface where I cut the rim off on my modified jig saw ( a foot instead of a table) it has a more appealing look. The catch is that the thickness has to be consistent, but that can usually be blended by sanding.
I have also have had some success boiling or steaming dry bowls and placing then upside down on a shallow cone with weight on top, and I can force them to dry a bit less wonky. The cone has plastic bag on it with holes through the center area. This lets the bowl ride up instead of splitting.
