“Patience is about inner reflection, peace and calm. Her coloring is very soft, very quiet. I wanted the viewer to feel the weight of her leaning on her hands. To feel the passage of time—when everything stops—to be in the present.
“It’s a reminder to take a moment to breathe.” (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.
