Got another case of itchy fingers a couple of days ago, the specific urge to mold with my thumbs, to hold something in my hands. A palm-sized, three-dimensional object.
A pull-chain had been hanging down from the porch ceiling fan since it was installed last summer, and it needed something pear-shaped and hand-friendly for the fingers to grasp when deciding between high and medium blade speeds.
I made a pear-shaped armature and molded a little pear-shaped woman over it. Now she rotates in a clockwise sarabande when we turn on the fan.
My fingers still itch, though.
