“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.

Much Too Small

While it is a nice paper weight, it is much too small. I purchased it as a gift and was very disappointed when I saw how small it was.

                I love buying unique gifts for my adult boys and this was a winner! My little boy who loved baseball growing up loves having this bit of a reminder on his desk. As a Criminal investigator for the Marines it is a great topic of conversation.
