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.

    I recently left my long term job of over eight years, which was extremely difficult as I had amazing colleagues. One of them was Mel and she bought this as a parting gift for me. A year ago I was going through a really rough patch in my personal life, and I will always remember Mel's kindness and love towards me. I will miss working with Mel heaps and miss the way she always makes me laugh and look forward to going to work every day. Thanks Mel for being so awesome to work with, for making things so much easier for me, and mostly just for being you. Love you lots xxxxxxxx

    I believe that there are no coincidences - I lost my two best friends due to illness. They were young beautiful and full of life. I miss them very much. I have always admired the Willow Tree collections, but never purchased one, but always wanted one. Today at lunch time from work I walked into a thrift shop. The first thing I spotted was this Friendship Willow Tree. I immediately thought of my two BFF's in Heaven. I will thank Nellie and Angie for my gift of finding the Willow Tree Friendship figure. Sending tons of love
