“I’m very close to my sisters, and the friendship and support of other women have always enriched my life. I also realize that there are friends or other relatives that may not be blood sisters, but share this same type of closeness.”
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. The 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 the giver and receiver.
