Soft Clay is an item which can be used to craft pottery. To make soft clay the player must mine clay (requiring only level 1 mining and giving 5 experience when mined), then use a bucket of water or jug of water on the dry clay to create soft clay. There are two locations with pottery facilities: The Barbarian Village, and the Crafting Guild.
First the soft clay must be used on the pottery wheel to make an unfired object (unfired pot, unfired bowl, or unfired pie dish) and then that object must be used on the pottery oven to harden it, which has a possibility of failure. Due to the availability of pots and bowl from shops, the only use for this is to train crafting or large-scale production of Pie Dishes.
