“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.

      Comments about UncommonGoods One Door Opens Paperweight:

      A very sweet and unique piece of art. On a flat surface the door swung open and I couldn't read the text. I had to put a little bit of cardboard underneath one corner to level it out so the door would stay closed, which is too bad. Otherwise I like how it looks and I like the message.

        Comments about UncommonGoods One Door Opens Paperweight:

        The picture is a bit deceiving in that I didn't realize this was made of a shiny metal. I thought it was more of a stone paperweight. I also didn't realize the door actually moves. So that was kind of cool.

        Over 10 years ago, my BFF and I got down-sized or let go from a job after being there for 10 years. As a result, we found jobs that made our careers boom!!!. We often say to one another, if that hadn't happened, we would still probably be comfortable and complacent. I sent this to her to represent look where we are now. She loved it!!!
