Pottery: A great antidote to the digital world.

Four major health benefits of the art of pottery

22nd December 2022

 

 

If you’re looking for something to do this holiday, why not try pottery-making? 

We live in a digital world and pottery is the perfect antidote. Potters describe the experience of pottery-making as grounding and soothing. It offers people a chance to slow down and focus on an activity other than checking emails or social media.

We’ve even seen social media videos trend on pottery-making. Millennials find these videos hypnotic and calming. Where before we may have expected the audience to be an older generation, we’re now seeing a new younger audience with equal gender balance.

 

Here are four more major health benefits of the art of pottery:

  1. Creativity: There are physical and mental benefits to expressing yourself through creation. Pottery allows you to create something and express yourself in some way.
  2. Improves focus: Being able to fully concentrate on something allows the mind to relax and expand, which aids in concentration in other areas of life.
  3. Stress reduction: Our hands are a creative outlet, and the sense of touch is extremely important. Because making pottery requires a lot of concentration, outside distractions are reduced and no longer stress you out. Hands, wrists, and arms are worked out. The process is a gentle yet strengthening movement for the hands, wrists, and arms. This can benefit those prone to hand arthritis because it promotes joint movement and dexterity.
  4. Increased optimistic outlook: Pottery improves flow and spontaneity, it serves as an outlet for emotions, and aids in self-identification and self-expression, boosting confidence and self-esteem.
