Clay Pottery

The most easily recognized form of sculpting is clay modeling, that is, the creation of a 3-dimensional piece of art typically using some type of clay: Plastilina (oil-based clay also known as plasteline, plasticium, plasticine), self-hardening (non-firing) clay, ceramic/pottery clay, wax or other polymer-based material.
In addition to the materials selected, the artist also uses modeling tools to manipulate the material into the shape desired. These sculpting tools come in various shapes, sizes and styles and are used to cut, scrape or shape the modeling material to create a specific effect.
