Willow Tree is an intimate line of figurative sculptures that speak in quiet ways to heal, comfort, protect & inspire.

Artist Susan Lordi hand carves the original of each Willow Tree® sculpture. Using family and friends as models, Susan tries to capture a moment in time or express a feeling. Pieces are cast from her original carvings and then individually painted by hand and softly washed colors, carved and metal accents, and representative icons of nature mark Susan's work.

"I try to keep the interpretation of Willow Tree open. I hope this makes it more personal, and allows the viewer to decide its meaning."

Willow Tree was introduced in January 2000. The line has grown to encompass those sentiments that we most want to express to our friends, family, teachers, those near and dear, and those far away.

The original inspiration for Willow Tree still holds today: Willow Tree is an intimate, personal line of figurative sculptures representing qualities and sentiments that help us feel close to others, heal wounds, or treasure relationships. Susan Lordi carves each original piece with this thought in mind. Her figures continue to evolve as she identifies important emotions for us to convey and renders them in simple, pure gestures. These art forms beautifully express love, closeness, healing, courage, hope... all the emotions of a well-lived life. The name Willow Tree was chosen to symbolize gestural and beckoning. The figures are columnar in design, like a tree, and often carry natural objects or animals as metaphors for human virtues or qualities—rosemary for remembrance, a bird for healing, and flowers for beauty.

The sculptures are rendered to suggest elegance, simplicity, peace, and serenity. Forms reveal their expressions through body gestures only... a tilt of the head, placement of the hands, and a turn of the body. Emotions are left to the viewer to discern, which makes them personal and powerful. Willow Tree is an understated line that speaks compellingly.
