“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.

For the price it costs, I feel it should have been bigger. I feel like I paid too much for something pretty small. It's a cool paperweight and unique, no complaints there and my husband was happy but for me the price and size don't match up.

I saw this in the catalogue and immediately wanted to give it to my father, who is a carpenter. I received it in the mail (I was told it was sent USPS instead of UPS bc it was under the qualifying weight). I was disappointed to see how small it was, and I was relly upset to see that the level was broken...cracked on one side. I immediately called the company, and they agreed to replace it "right away" without me even having to go through the hassle of returning the broken one. Well that was almost a month ago and I am still waiting. I have spoken to four different service reps and have been assured it will be here for Christmas....I am waiting until Dec 21st, then I will ask for my money back. Hope you come through Uncommongoods, bc despite it's small size, this really is a unique gift!

Comments about UncommonGoods Levelheaded Paperweight:

I LOVED this little Level Headed Guy. He seems pretty sturdy and heavy enough to be a very good paperweight. The ONLY thing is I wish that the guy could have been a little bit bigger. Not my boyfriend though.

        Product itself is great, but site shows one figure with the wording "stay level headed" and a second without the words. I received 1 figure with the wording and feel a little mislead.
