Like our friendship... vibrant and ever-constant
“Calla lilies are a fresh surprise – uplifting in shape; invigorating in color. I wanted to express their vibrancy with a gradation of color that builds, starting as limey green, morphing to beautiful coral, tinged with wine. And calla lilies also have a long blooming season… So the qualities of this flower represent supportive, constant friendship. The kind of friend who stays by our side, lifting our spirits through the best and the worst.” —Susan Lordi
A gift to celebrate friendships, 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.

    My Mother was in ICU where no flowers were allowed. My sister bought her a piece in the gift shop. It was so beautiful and such a lasting piece that as other family members came, they too went down and got Mom a piece. I chose Bloom because I have always had bangs and those lillies bloom by my Mothers front door, I have always loved the color of them. So Bloom spoke to me.

    A couple of years ago, my friend mentioned to me that she loved these Willow Tree pieces. After reading the description of the pieces for "friendship" I can't help but feel very comforted and reassured that good friends are something to cherish. I just ordered "Bloom", but I feel like I can buy my friend every single one! I hope she likes it!
