“A tree can be a metaphor for strength, beauty and peace — qualities we all aspire to. The prayer is one of hope and healing; about living in the moment. The title is as much a prayer as the sentiment. This piece is very open. The tree can be a symbol of anything that is centering and inspirational. Trees are grounding — a connection to that which sustains us. It could also reference the Tree of Life — a universal symbol in many different religions, both Christian and non-Christian.” —Susan Lordi
A gift to comfort and encourage hope and healing. Commemorate spiritual milestones such as baptism, first communion, confirmation, or add to Nativity display.

Our Story
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.

    On March 22, 2015, my dad was killed in a motor vehicle accident. He was hit by a drunk driver who was running from the police. My stepmother, little brother and his girlfriend were all in the vehicle and severely hurt. My dad was killed instantly. My little brother and his girlfriend are still struggling with their injuries but are home and trying to get back to a normal routine. My stepmom is still in a rehab unit and will continue to struggle for a really long time. During this devastating time in our lives, there were many people who stepped up to help our family. This is just a little token of appreciation and thanks from our family to them. This piece is a perfect example of how I see my dad, as an angel. He is now our Guardian Angel watching over my family and his grandchildren who were the light of his life. I love you Dad!
