Willow Tree is an intimate line of figurative sculptures that speak in quiet how one can heal, comfort, offer protection to, and inspire. This piece is cast from my original carving, and then painted by hand. I attempt to keep the interpretation of Willow Tree open. I hope this makes it more personal, and lets you make a decision its meaning. May the simplicity of these figures communicate peace and serenity to you and those you love.
Willow Tree isn’t necessarily a likeness; its a way of conveying emotion. A reminder of someone we need to keep close, or a memory that we need to touch, or see. I hope that people can recognize subtle expressions or gestures of those they love, and from that, be ready to choose pieces that are uniquely meaningful for them. – Susan Lordi Artist Susan Lordi hand carves the original of each Willow Tree figure from her art studio in Kansas City, Missouri. Expression is revealed through gestures only; a tilt of the head, placement of the hands, a turn of the body. The simplicity of form and the absence of facial features signify Willow Tree. It is Susans hope that these pieces be meaningful to both giver and receiver.
