If you lose your wallet, you hope someone thoughtful will find it for you…and if you’re in luck, that someone might by Sylvie Rosenthal.
Last winter, an Artful Home employee dropped her wallet in a snowbank and considered it gone for good. Little did she know that it would be found by an artist whose work she knew well. Because of their shared connection with Artful Home, Sylvie Rosenthal was able to locate the wallet’s rightful owner and return it to her without a penny misplaced.
This serendipitous occurrence is certainly a “small world” moment; it also reveals a bit of Sylvie’s character, though it tells you nothing about her vast creativity and expertise as a sculptor and woodworker. For that, you have only to step into her studio or learn a bit about her personal history. We were excited to have the opportunity to do just that on a recent spring afternoon, when Sylvie invited us into her Madison, Wisconsin, studio to have a look around.
