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.
ARTIST SUSAN LORDI
Susan Lordi describes herself as a maker. And when she's not making something, she’s thinking about it. Since introducing Willow Tree® in 1999, she has conceived, sculpted and carved the original of each figure in her Kansas City art studio. Her artistic process is rather intuitive; she "sketches" in clay as she forms and carves each piece. This one-of-a-kind approach to product creation makes her pieces truly individual... her hand, and her unique perspective, is evident in each sculpture.
