life goes on

The brain discovers what the fingers explore. The density of nerve endings in our fingertips is enormous. Their discrimination is almost as good as that of our eyes. If we don't use our fingers, if in childhood and youth we become 'finger-blind', this rich network of nerves is impoverished - which represents a huge loss to the brain and thwarts the individuals' all-around development. Such damage might be linked to blindness itself. Perhaps worse, while a blind person may simply not find this or that object, the finger-blind cannot understand its inner meaning and value.

That looks like fun. What kind of materials do you use for this, and how much would you say it costs for the supplies, to do one of these independently?

Simple, just clay Cym. the cost adds up to be around $12 per head. A fifty pound box cost $24 before taxes.
I have them build up the structure hollow first, coils of clay fused together. Only thereafter we start to work on the actual features.
