Laars has high regard for the feel of something. He’s a very tactile boy. Sitting in a room waiting for his mom he will sit on the floor and run his hands continuously over a textured wall. Or he will lie down on cool tiles, or place barefeet on cold surfaces like the back of a leather couch, or a cold appliance.
So he loves working with modelling clay, and is constantly cutting up paper into a kazillion pieces. Sometimes they are bigger chunks that he can re-construct into some form of beauty.
