These bowls do seep a lot of moisture from the bottom because, like chamitch says, they are not glazed on the outside of the base and they absorb moisture if they are immersed when cleaned. We wash the glazed areas only for routine cleaning and if we have to immerse them for thorough cleaning we let them dry upside down for a week or so before we use them again. We also find that a lot of these have slow leaks in the ceramic glaze on the inside so that they drain out. Nice heavy bowls though, but we have replaced almost all ours with heavy plastic now because of the seaping,
