Keywords: Cube, square, three-dimensional

Step 1: Role the clay into a big ball.

Step 2: Shape or slice off the sides flat with a butter knife or thread to give it six square sides.

Step 3: See below what your cube might look like.

See below the sculpture 'The Cube Endover' by Tony Rosenthal, located at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Note how the artist balanced the cube on a single vertex.
