How to use "Clay sculpture" in context?

The body of a sculpture is made up of a variety of soft, easily worked clay materials which, when dry, have a matte finish. Different layers of clay are then applied and smoothed with a wood or plastic mallet until the desired shape is reached. Once the clay is dry and firm, it is chiseled, etched, or cut by hand to create the final product. The most common type of clay used for sculpture is known as earthenware, and it is typically fired at a very low temperature in an oven. This low firing temperature results in a strong and durable sculpture, with a matte finish.
