This figure could be an encouraging and supportive reminder to someone beginning a process, a ‘journey’… perhaps moving toward greater well-being and independence; a new career or location; overcoming illness or personal loss… it’s a reminder to pause and reflect on the moments—both difficult and joyful—along the path toward achieving goals.
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.
