“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.

Amazing gift!

This gift will be among his "treasures" for ever, I hope. It was the perfect graduation statement, and was so clever the way the door actually opens and closes. My grandson loved it.

I love it. Not only is it a good paperweight but it is food for thought. The open door is very graphic. I need the reminder.

Very unique!

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.

New job gift

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.

When One Door Closes Another One Opens

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!!!

This was given to friend/co-worker from her office upon retirement. The perfect gift for one who is unique and artistic herself. Knowing her creative taste, this is one gift that will not be shoved into a drawer.

This is a great gift for someone starting a new phase of their life (job, move to a new home, graduation, etc.) . I have bought this for two friends who landed new jobs. Had it delivered to their new office and was on their desk for their first day of work. They loved the gift .
