Anthony Romero:

Clay waits patiently to be molded and sculpted, always on the verge of reforming into something that reveals a part of the artist’s soul. Clay is all about communion – it is one of the only artistic mediums that absorbs into the artist’s body during use. Through touch and thought, it soaks up part of an artist’s identity then responds to pushing, pulling, and conceptualizing during creation.
