About the Author
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 emotions so important 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 life well lived.
The name Willow Tree was chosen to symbolize that which is 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, flowers for beauty.
The sculptures are rendered so as to suggest elegance, simplicity, peace and serenity. Forms reveal their expressions through body gestures only… a tilt of the head, placement of the hands, 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 in a compelling way.

It has been fun to add to my mom's Willow Tree nativity every year. I'm hoping to get one for myself soon!

My mother-in-law has this, and I plan to add it to my collection soon! It is a very cute set, and I am always amazed at the emotion in the willow tree pieces. This set is also made very well. I love it!
I can't wait to display it again

I received this as a gift last year and absolutely love it. It came packaged very securely and neatly. It seems very quality and will fit into many different decorating schemes. I think that it is more of a showcase nativity though, and not one that I would let my little kids handle too much.
LOVE willow tree

It just brings such a sense of peace when I open up my willow tree nativity set. I love looking at it, and what it reminds me of. I wish I could leave it up all year long!
