Christmas is all about giving… so I wanted this Tree Topper to give a presence of light. A star is such a strong Christmas symbol… perhaps that’s why it has traditionally graced the top of the tree. Since the sun is also a star, I designed the Starlight Tree Topper with a sun-like shape… the sun, by its very nature, radiates warmth, energy and light. It draws us in; it brings us together.” (Susan Lordi)
The 12″ Tree Topper holds a delicate, pierced metal star encrusted with glitter that catches the light and sparkles at every angle. The inside of the figure is hollow to accommodate the top branch of the tree. She can also stand as a figure—a warm invitation to gather and celebrate the holiday.
ABOUT WILLOW TREE®
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.
