I have clay pizza pans that I wash with hot water. They are stored near the floor & even the dog doesn't snif or lick them. I also have bread pans & I just line them with tin foil when stored, again no smell.

Hi, I was also disabled from throwing or any type of hand work with rheumatoid arthritis. I was deviated as I could not bend my fingers or my wrists or any other joint. Luckily I got a good Doctor that eventually put me on an injection that has now put the ra into recession for now, but I also have fibre myalgia so working on the wheel is done for short periods with sometimes a couple of days break.

I stopped entering sales. I now put a few pots into a shop on consignment & that's going well.

The backup was reading & pining for wheel throwing & exercising as much as possible. Lots of walking with my dog. Maybe back to watercolours painting?

In Topic: Wax Resist

I use ceramic supplied wax resist with food colour added. I use kitchen sponges, the kind that dry hard, I cut it into small pieces. They are easy to swirl around the bottom of mugs. When I'm done I rinse them out in warm soapy water & they are ready for the next job. Simple & fast they work easily around the rim for lids.

I use "Working Hands" it comes in a low green tin & heals your hands very well, heals other scrape as well.

I listen to books while I throw and music while I glaze as the volume is way up then to hear in the glaze room. I pod & dock.
