Willow Tree® by 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.

Susan describes herself as a maker. Since 1999, she has conceived, sculpted and carved the original of each figure. Over the years, Lordi's sculpting and carving has evolved to include delicate patterns of pierced metal and pressed gold leaf, free-hand surface etchings, sculptures carved in the round so that every angle reveals a different understanding... but always, a focus on form and gesture that speaks to the universal. By stripping down the essence of emotion to pure form, she opens the interpretation of each piece to the giver and the receiver.
