Why Clay? The primal medium not representative as charcoal and paper, brush and ink, but presentative; objects moding reality, not shaping ideas but making them incarnate,

Whys so many believe represetnation the primal art when thery must be reality before representing it?

Gooey clay; Squeeze it to form man from earth. Fire it for permanence. It is both the start and end of arts mortality, outlasting flood fire and vermin.
