Angel of Mine

So loved, so very loved
"This piece is inspired by the memory of holding my children when they were really tiny … holding them so close that it involves all of your senses … the scent of the fuzzy head against your cheek, the skin-to-skin warmth, the realization that you can love another being so very, very much. I wanted to capture that sensory memory that every mother has from when she held her newborn infant—an innermost quiet joy. The sentiment has a lullaby feel to it.” —Susan Lordi
A gift to celebrate new beginnings, new babies, new families… and the loving relationship that develops between mother and child

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.

    My husband and I delivered our first baby in 2010. Alyssa Marie was loved and wanted more than anything. We found out at 20 weeks that her kidneys were bad. She was stillborn at 32 weeks. It was devastating but holding my little girl in the hospital was special and important. A good friend bought me this willow tree the following Mother's Day. He said I would always be a mother whether she was in my arms or not. I will never forget it.

    I wanted a child for so long, so you can imagine my excitement when I found out I was pregnant at the end of December. It was such exciting news to start the new year with. However in February at 8 1/2 weeks I was given the awful news my baby had no cardiac activity and I would soon miscarry. I've had a really hard time accepting this. My birthday was yesterday and I wanted no part of celebrating. I wanted to pay for an elective ultrasound to know the gender of my baby for my birthday. When I could no longer have that I wanted nothing else. Last night I was at dinner with my family and was given this as a gift. I cried, it's so beautiful and so fitting.

    Last December 19th, I gave birth to a sweet baby girl who passed after living for just six hours beyond her full nine months in my womb. A dear friend of mine since about sixth grade sent me the Angel of Mine figurine, and it meant so very much, as I had seen it during my pregnancy and wanted to buy it after had my daughter. It represents me and my daughter, and the figurine rests right by my computer where I work every day. It means so very much.

    I bought "New Dad" to tell my husband I was pregnant with our daughter. A couple years later I took her with me to pick out a new piece since we were pregnant again. We chose "New LIfe", but now the "Angel of Prayer" sits next to it because we lost that baby. After our third loss, my sister-in-law gave us "Angel's Embrace". A few months later I realized I was missing an important piece. We didn't have anything to represent our 2nd loss, so after looking at everything you had, we chose "Angel of Mine", partly because of our angels in heaven. These figurines have given us much peace and we thank you for making them available to us to cherish.

    I purchased this piece after my son's pregnant fiance killed herself. It represents her and the baby to me. I love looking at it, imagining them in heaven. The card that came with the figurine,"Angel of Mine, So loved, so very loved" describes how I feel simply and purely. I love this piece. It means a lot to me. Thank you so much.
