So much love!
“I think that a rose is one of the most beautiful natural objects that we can – carefully – hold in our hands. We enjoy the intoxicating scent, the silk-velvet touch, the perfect form. They unfold and give forth their fragrance; they’re intimate and draw you in… So this piece could be a gift to a mother or friend or Valentine, or someone you’re wishing well. Sometimes it’s nice to give a gift to let someone know that they are a gift in your life. I wanted the bouquet to be overflowing – more than enough – to express abundant feelings for someone, or the abundant goodness a person shares with others.” —Susan Lordi
A gift that expresses love and caring… or for those who love flowers!

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.

    I wanted to send my dear friend, Nancy, flowers for her birthday but thought it would be so nice to send her a lasting gift --- something that she could enjoy for years to come --- an abundance of flowers. She is always doing special things for others and I think there is no better way to recognize her generous and loving heart than with this very special Willow Tree figure. I was able to send her my love from New York across the country to her home in California.

    My daughter and son-in-law gave me this piece as a gift when they returned from their honeymoon. My daughter said the lady reminded her of both me and my mom. It immediately reminded me of the story my dad told of the first time he ever saw my mom. It was at Camp Sherman in Oregon and he saw my mom coming down the road with an armful of flowers. Both of my parents recently passed away, and this piece, and the thoughtfulness of my daughter and son-in-law brought tears to my eyes and made my heart swell. Even now, as I write this, I am teary-eyed.
