Message: Friendship brings the sun... and flowers bloom!
Everyone knows somebody that lights up a room when she or he walks in. You're always happy to see that person - it's somebody who captures the essence of life - who's fun to be around - who brings energy and light. Like when the sun comes out! When I'm outside on a cloudy day and feel the sun on my skin, it makes me want to turn my face up to embrace it - just like a sunflower. My sister Karen who helps me on Willow Tree was the inspiration for this piece; she raises my spirits. This piece is for those people who enrich your life every day. - Susan Lordi

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.
