"I love the majestic yet simple form of the tall thin cypress trees abundant throughout the countryside of Europe. The spires seem to knit earth to sky, integrating landscape and atmosphere. I wanted to capture the elegant architecture of these trees, and create a visually uplifting form for the Nativity. " "The surfaces are carved with symbols of nature, representing life and renewal... pinpoints of gold leaf create light and movement." —Susan Lordi
As a Christmas gift, wedding gift or self-purchase, the Willow Tree Nativity collection continues on as a family tradition.

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.
The Artist

Susan Lordi

Susan Lordi's artistic process is rather intuitive; she "sketches" in clay as she conceives, sculpts and carves each piece, always with a focus on gesture that speaks to the universal. By stripping down the essence of emotion to pure form, she opens the interpretation of each piece to the giver and the receiver. This one-of-a-kind approach to product creation makes her pieces truly individual... her hand, and her unique perspective, is evident in each sculpture.
