#56373 Low Hand Strength?

Posted by Joy pots on 09 April 2014 - 11:26 AM

Hi, I have rheumatoid arthritis & use neoprene wristbands while throwing & wedging actually I use them for all the fun in the pottery. I use very soft clay as well. I have wrist/hand braces with a rigid part on the palm that rests my hands at night & keep the inflammation down. This really helps as at one time I thought my life as a potter was over but joy I'm still going strong. There are days when I need to take time off & I can tell when I've over done it.
Hope this helps you.

Happy New Year

I am going to experiment this year. Gather all the sketches I've done over many years on little pieces of paper & finally make them into pots. Fun time.
