When you were a kid, a sheet of paper and a few folds made a miniature airplane powered by your imagination. Recall the simple pleasure of that activity with this inspirational airplane paperweight. Made of hefty lead-free pewter, it won't take to the sky, but will serve as a reminder of carefree fun and the limitless potential of the wide-open sky. Makes a great gift for graduation or for anyone who could use a little lift in life. Handmade by Tamara Hensick in Los Angeles, California.

“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.
