“I like working with patterning and pierced metal. The wreath has always been a symbol of hospitality and welcome, and this wreath is kind of decorative—it’s light and lacy and feminine. The sentiment is light-hearted… It’s a little endearment; a way to say thank you, or let someone know she’s special.” (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.
