Angel of Healing

For those who give comfort with caring and tenderness
“This was the first piece that I sculpted in the summer of 1999. It came about intuitively, and so it was natural that the result ended up being very open to interpretation. The bird can be protection, comfort or healing. When I created it, I was thinking about the idea of fragility and how we sometimes need to heal our inside — our soul. A bird is so fragile and vulnerable … a metaphor for our inner feelings. This piece helped define Willow Tree.” —Susan Lordi
A gift to comfort and encourage hope and healing.

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.

    Dear Susan Angel of healing was given to me a month ago from my very good friend Marcia. My younger brother died aged 46 on the 11th July 2015. This peace has helped me to come to terms with the pain and other wounds i thought had healed. I treasure my angel and will continue to use it to heal my pain.
