Artists work in many different mediums and many have a particular preference. One of those choices is working with clay. It is a versatile material that lends itself to artistic creativity. It is malleable and can be shaped by hand on a potter's wheel, or it can be molded and pressed in the art of sculpting until the final form desired is achieved. Color is another facet of clay that artists appreciate. The clay itself can be colored and it can also be fired with different glazes to create a distinctive look or design. Different combinations of working clay, firing processes and glazes offer artists a limitless vista for creativity.
