Participating in the hobby of clay pottery has many benefits and if you become extremely good, maybe you'll start a business in selling your unique products.

Stress Reducing

Just the feeling alone of having wet clay on your hands and smothering it on to the wheel is enough to rid stress from your life. Even the slow motion of just letting the wheel spin your project onto your hands will calm your soul in ways that you never could have imagined. So before you go out and pay for a meditation or stress relieving class, try getting started with clay pottery.

New Hobbies

Clay pottery is a great new hobby to get into as it offers a large variety of project ideas for you to create. With clay pottery you can never purchase or make the same exact item twice. So whether you decide to collect clay pottery or create it, you will be given the opportunity to have a large collection of pottery pieces with absolutely no duplicates. Remember that instead of trying to create a duplicate, create a set in which every piece is the same color, just a completely different design.

Exercises

Pottery is excellent for any individuals that suffer from carpal tunnel or arthritis. While creating a pottery piece your fingers and hands move in a very slow, relaxing motion which allows your hands to strengthen and stretch at the same time. By keeping your joints moving at all times, you will notice a large difference in the decrease of pain in your hands, as well as the discomfort. Although you may think you require medications for your aliments, pottery could very easily take away the pain you have been waiting to ease your years.
