“I tried to capture a quiet moment in time, since they are so rare when you have a young child. At that age, about 18 months — they’re their own little person — with a defined personality separate from your own. This is one rare and tender moment together — in sync with each other.” (Susan Lordi)
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.
