“I love to hear from people who see in my figures who or what they want to see. I like that level of participation with the viewer. It’s another reason why I like to keep Willow Tree open, so that there is room for the viewer to see their child’s face, their friend, etc. in the pieces. I hear from many emails and letters that a piece may look exactly like ‘my little ___’ and I love to hear that. I heard from a woman who owned Cherish that the figure was exactly the way she carried her baby in her third pregnancy! With Cherish, I wanted to break new ground. I hadn’t seen a figure of a very pregnant woman before. It’s such a beautiful form, and such an amazing experience for a woman, and I wanted to capture and celebrate this contemplative time of life.” —Susan Lordi
A gift to celebrate new beginnings, new babies, new families… and the loving relationships that develop between parent and child.

Description
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 received this gift from one of my best friends: Annamaria. She wants this to be our lucky charm because we are trying to have a child but we're having a lot of troubles. When I see Cherish I look at all the love that surrounds me and that I hope to give to my children as soon as possible.
