Willow Tree- My New Baby
Lots to learn to love to grow together
One of my favorite photos, taken long ago, is of my then-toddler daughter holding her newborn brother in exactly this pose. She is holding onto the baby with her entire body—her gesture communicating possession as well as pride and wonder. As the days and weeks passed, a little bit of big-sister jealousy crept in... Growing up together, they had to work things out... the push and pull, all the spats that siblings go through... gradually learning to love and support one another, until eventually discovering... they are each other's greatest gift." –Susan Lordi
About Willow Tree
Willow Tree sculptural art forms beautifully express love, closeness, healing, courage, hope… all the emotions of a life well lived. 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.
