Years ago at the New York International Gift Fair, we wandered into a booth adorned with silver wishbones and met Tamara Hensick. It didn’t take long for us to make a wish to carry her line of small sculptures in our showroom.
Tamara has been making her sculptures of bronze, sterling silver, and pewter for over 20 years. Her first piece was a silver wishbone, which continues to be a signature design.
Tamara bases her designs on wordplay and symbolism to create inspirational themes for the special times in our lives. “Bringing a saying to life through sculpture is the through line of my work. Inspiration flip flops from a word, phrase, idea, or thought that then indicates the form. Sometimes it is the other way around — where an object, animal, or something in nature I love inspires the word play,” says Tamara.
Susan Stutheit, our Senior Interior Designer and Manager, says, “Sutter Place Interiors is known for finding unique and creative lines not only for one’s own homes, but also special, every day gift giving. We feature lines which are not found in every shop and sometimes, like Tamara’s line, no where else in Lincoln, possibly even all of Nebraska.”
If you are in need of a gift for any occasion, visit our showroom to find the perfect sculpture from Tamara Hensick Designs.
