Willow Tree® figurative sculpture communicates through gesture about relationships and emotions that are important to us. These expressive figures don’t age; rather, they deepen in meaning for both the giver and the receiver. To comfort a friend, to celebrate a birth, to show appreciation for kindness – a gift of Willow Tree communicates beyond words.
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.
