“I'm inspired by the idea that all that is built, made, painted, and fabricated by humans was an idea. What an amazing thought, and it means nothing is impossible.”

Tamara Hensick is a sculptor whose muses are manifold, and range from ideas and idioms to funny notions, stories, and fairytales. Her first piece was a chicken wishbone molded and cast in sterling silver to inspire one to always make wishes. Sculpting in soft, malleable jeweler's wax and hardening clays, her finished designs are molded and cast in various metals. Her collection of cast pewter, sterling silver, and bronze pieces include organic, figure, animal, and object motifs that bring a saying, idea, or whimsical phrase to life.

            This is so cute! It was suggested as a paperweight but not really heavy enough for a paperweight. It is still a cute gift to sit around.

              The product was bigger than expected which was great. My girlfriend loves it and keeps it on one of her tables and always shows it off when company comes over.

              Happy Valentine's Day

              After all these years it gets a bite hard to come up with a gift for Valentine's Day. We certainly don't need any more stuff. This was a perfect little gift. It's useful (paper weight), clever and affordable. Also it tells him how I feel and it won't die in a few days.
              He laughed when he opened it, always a good sign.
