You are probably doing this already….
As you get close to the thickness you want turn the top 1-1.5” to completion, then move down to the next 1-1.5”, and so on. Do not try to go back to the top edge.
If you are using a standard scraper it can set up a lot of vibration; if you have one try a negative rake scraper with a light touch to remove the tool marks.
Mine are almost always functional (vs artistic) so my walls may be 1/4 to 3/8 thick depending on the size. Exception would be very small, like 4-5”, where I would have thinner walls.
If you are using a negative rake you may do like some folks, use one hand on the outside to steady the bowl and the other holding the tool with a light touch.
