Heart of Gold was inspired by a young cancer patient, Scott Kristopher Innes, at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City.
“Scott’s boundless and positive energy reflected on those around him, and as a result, good things continue to radiate from his spirit. His courageous spirit and kind smile showed me how one little heart of gold can continue to bring so much love, joy and comfort to others. It is my hope that this figure expresses the pure and honest affection between a child and those who love and care for him.” (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.
