handles distorting pots

To All,

I am fairly new to ClayArt and have a basic
question to pose to the group: I have started
to make low-walled bowls with handles and
find that even drying these pieces very
slowly they tend to become distorted. The
handles I attach to the pieces are not much
different in thickness to that of the wall of
the bowl. Any suggestions as to how I may
avoid or minimize this distortion will be
greatly appreciated.

with TIA,
