most all of them i would say. more natural the better though. as long as it will not leach stuff it should be sweet!

Most clay needs to be fired(after you've shaped it) to make it inert, I use Terracotta or Black clay and it is then fired.
you can get what's called air drying clay but I dont know what this is like when submerged in water.
