in refernce to asian (Korean) pottery, "foot-rims" comes up in the text we have to translate, but there is no context to help us with meaning.

Explanation:
Rim=Borde. Foot=Pie. In this case, the meaning is the rim at the bottom, as opposed to the top, of a piece of pottery. It's the rim or edge (often circular) that goes around the bottom of the piece which often lends support as well as having a decorative function. HTH.

\'Bottom rim\' would be another way of saying this in English, you could also translate this term into Spanish and be correct/have the correct meaning.
