“This is intended as a universal piece of goodwill… her hairstyle and gold-flecked hair band suggest an aura of celebration and specialness. Blessings is a little reminder to count our blessings every day. She speaks to any denomination or ethnicity. She celebrates the richness of diversity in our culture.” (Susan Lordi)
Willow Tree® is an intimate line of figurative sculptures that speak in quiet ways to heal, comfort, protect and inspire. Artist Susan Lordi hand carves the original of each figure from her studio in Kansas City Missouri. Pieces are cast from her original carvings, and individually painted by hand. 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 absence of facial features signify Willow Tree. It is Susan’s hope that these pieces be meaningful to both giver and receiver.
