If lucky, make a smaller bowl, turning away those cracks. Many people will disagree with me but not much, you can do. Once a bowl blanks, starts cracking those cracks get bigger. JMHO, cracks are not art!
If leave an unfinished wet bowl, on or off the lathe for more than an hour or overnight either put a paper or plastic bag over it or put bowl inside a bag. Some folks will bag a bowl on the lathe if going to get sandwich. I have put wet shavings in the bag too!
