Objects made of clay hardened into a relatively permanent material by firing. Also, the process of making such objects. Ceramics is a rather basic material for sculptures. It is not particularly expensive. It can be easily shaped into almost any figure when it is wet. After it dries it is usually burned in a special oven to keep it solid. Ceramics tend to break easily, so on delivery make sure it is handled carefully.
