As clay in the hand of the potter
(p 227 Mahzor Lev Shalem)

Each paragraph of this piyyut (poem) describes humans as materials in the hands of a master crafter. Review the piyyut and choose a couple of videos to watch (below) showing what happens to that material.
How does this metaphor work for you, and where does it fall flat? 

As clay in the hand of the potter 

As stone in the hand of the mason

As iron in the hand of the blacksmith

As the helm in the hand of the sailor

As glass in the hand of the glazier

As cloth in the hand of the draper

As silver in the hand of the smelter
