Build for Now and teh Future Hammer paperweight by Tamara Hensick
Tamara Hensick's inspiration for her work comes from everyday life whether it be sayings, overheard conversations, musings, humorous phrases, nature observed (be it flora, fauna or human), the animate, inanimate, or man-made, all in the desire to find meaning, see beauty and to laugh.
With an idea decided upon, the piece is hand sculpted in sculpting wax or modeling clay. The sayings or words are stamped into the soft medium and the finished prototype is then molded. Depending on the casting process the molds are used for wax injection to create individual wax models or to cast metal directly in to.
The Hammer measures 4.25 inches by 3 inches by approximately .75 inches and comes in a gift box ready for gift giving.
