Not that I'm aware of beyond "a foot" . Why aren't you outside enjoying that gentle wafting breeze off the Atlantic?

I've always used the term "button". To the assistant; "Bring me a button the size of a quarter, please." (pays to be polite to the help) I wouldn't consider it a bit, a prunt, morise, stem, or foot (gather), all of which I have used as request terms during production. Don't know where I picked that up, but that's my 2c...

In my terms. A button is just a bit of glass to thicken the bottom when it gets thin. A foot is more substantial and is either the part of the vessel that the bowl/plate stands on or is used to hook to a mounting. \

There are enough participants on this board to pick term and declare it canonical. Majority wins in language. Noone would dare question it if you chose an Italian word. Except Italians, but majority still wins.
'Ghianda' would work, for example.

One of the challenges in glassblowing is that there aren't any truly canonical terms as there is no group to manage the "canon". There are strong vernacular terms but they are not managed as a standard vocabulary.

which helps explain the missing front teeth on so many younger Muranese assistants.

This is one of those irresistible topics to me as my non-glass job is as a information architect.

Both actually but my title is Enterprise Information Architect. I am working on deployment of AI both generative and non-generative. Always fun working with a technology that can hallucinate.
