Could you lend me a hand?


I’m amused by selfies. I admit it. Not of myself but of others. I think people like to be noticed and that’s ok for me.

So, I am making new piece that will address the joy of twittering,instagramming , facebooking or whatever social media is the latest buzz.

I need some hands to wave to get the attention of passers-by and of course, I have to make the simple tasks more complex. I couldn’t go find some hands at, well, wherever you find hands. Michael’s perhaps? So here’s the process so far.

Gotta draw it first. Yes, I meant three fingers.

Then of course, you have to make it. I thought about CAD/CAM and 3D printing. Then I realized, it would take 10-15 minutes to make out of clay. It did. Here’s that;

Here it is in the mold. Not too much information there.
