...and heaven and nature sing

    "Starry Night Nativity challenged me to tell a story and engage the viewer in a small space. All the figures fit into an 8" box that opens up as a triptych and reveals a starry night encircling an intimate scene. My use of deep gradated blues and sparkly gold is a jewel-like reference to historical objects of art... I embellished the surfaces with gold dots —symbolizing light, or energy, hope inner strength...Gold connotes preciousness and enduring value, and I wanted this to be a special piece, that would be kept for a long time, or possibly handed down within families.

    "I designed this piece to be versatile enough to display year-round, on a table or a wall; open or closed. The outside doors reflect nature and the cycles of life—regeneration, renewal, rebirth. These themes influence everything I make."

    Starry Night Nativity

    Submitted by Joyce Lebel in New Hampshire, October 2016

    Willow Tree: Starry Night Nativity. The Holy Family has always been special to me, not only during the Christmas season but all year long. What's so special about this piece, unlike taking out the multiple piece set that I have of the Willow Tree nativity collection, it is the ease of just opening up the doors and tada, there's the scene as best as Willow Tree can depict it in a three framed magnificent piece of art that closes back up when not in season. It's one of few that my husband cannot or will not call clutter; it's beautiful and useful and reminds us what the Holiday season is all about. Praise be the Lord Jesus Christ and His Holy Family.

    Starry Night Nativity

    Submitted by Kelly in Kalamazoo, MI, US, November 2015

    Years ago my daughter started collecting the pieces to the nativity set. Her grand parents decided that every year they would continue to help her build the set. It became a holiday tradition that they shared together for 8 years. She has now lost both her grand parents, so to keep that lovely tradition going her mother and I are taking over for her grand parents. What a beautiful way to keep memories going while still adding to this tradition. Thank You Willow Tree

    Starry Night Nativity

    Submitted by Michelle Kehoe in Johnson Creek, WI, August 2015

    I started giving a Nativity set as my regular wedding gift about 9 years ago including a few varieties of Willow Tree and others. I was looking for my gift for an October wedding and though I usually order online I decided to stop at a Hallmark store. Seeing Starry Night is why I purchased it for this wedding gift. No photo can show how absolutely stunning and beautiful this holy piece of art is. If I had not seen it I may have thought the small size was not worth the steep price, but the three dimension, the rich colors, the gold glittery stars and touches of gold on the holy family and the gifts and the detailed carving that includes shepherds and animals are all so well done. It is an art piece that begs to be looked at in reverence and awe not only for what it represents, but for the heart and craftsmanship behind it. Even the keepsake box is lovely. Thank you Susan Lordi for creating another masterpiece to be shared with families and passed through the generations! It is a joy to give such a lovely wedding keepsake!
