“The sentiment ‘By my side’ alludes to the shared background we have with our siblings; the unspoken support and consistent presence that we often take for granted when we are children, but grow to appreciate as we age. It could also imply that regardless of where our sibling is, he or she is truly always by our side.” (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.
