What’s the difference between sculpture and ceramics?

Question by MacuPacu: What’s the difference between sculpture and ceramics?
I have the option of signing up for sculpture or ceramics, but there is no description given. I was wondering what I could generally expect to see in these kinds of classes. Does sculpture mean you are trying to model something else and ceramics are more free form? I’m clueless so please help! thanks!

Answer by bob n
Sculpture is carving away material (knife). Modeling or building up material (plaster, clay) or casting (aluminium or bronze ). All deal with three dimensional objects
Ceramics is working with clay (earthenware or stoneware) by hand and on a pottery wheel.
Sculpture can use clay and clay is used in three demensions but, they are very different classes.
Both are a lot of fun.
