A wine goblet or a dessert bowl?

At our potters' guild in Ottawa, we are always encourage to make wine goblet for our holiday exchange in December.  It's always seem hard to make one, I made 2 two years ago and they got stuck together during glaze firing because the stems were to thin.  Beginning of the year, one of the guild members forwarded on this youtube clip by Cynthia Bringle http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=JHoDeHkcAkk - which Cynthia demonstrated how to make goblet in one piece.  So, I took that idea and made my 2nd "goblet"....however I used way too much clay, it actually looks more like a dessert bowl. :p
