If mud is dirt plus water, what is clay?

Clay is the original Family name of Cassius; The ground that London is built on; the stuff i lost my left welly in when i was 8;Concrete & Clay was a popular song in the 60's;people make pots out of a certain type - i say people - i couldn't - well could but not technically a pot - not sure; bit of a strange question really - it was the 10th on the list so not as weird as 9 I could mention.
