“I wanted this figure to be a strong message of hopefulness and healing. The gradations of gold and white suggest a glow from within.
“Vigil can be seen as a welcoming piece as well as a bereavement piece; a healing piece, a serene piece, a piece of comfort and mindfulness.” (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.
