The article focuses on the fourth part of a research on sustainable ceramic art and design as of May 1, 2012. Topics include specifications of paperclay, the structure of paperclay as a porous material, and its filtration capacity. The author discusses the creation of decorative elements made of paperclay, shrinkage potential of the terracotta used, and data on the work of designers from developing countries who use water-based manufacture in their work with clay.
