Instructions: Paintings and drawings are flat, in two dimensions. Sculptures are works of art in three dimensions, such as the origami plane and boat you made previously. Clay is fine-grained earth that can be molded and shaped when wet and hardens when dried at high heats. Use polymer clay or oven-hardening clay to sculpt a bowl. (The instructor) Bake your sculpture in the oven to harden it.

Many cultures, in past in present, make dishes out of common clay.

You can make a bowl with a lump of soft, moist clay.

Press a hole in the middle with your thumbs.

Push out and pull up the round bowl.

When you need more clay, add a small lump at a time.

Work it in with the thumbs.

See the bowl grow into a beautiful shape!
