“Guardian represents the overwhelming feelings of motherhood, and the desire to protect your new baby forever. The image of an infant cradled closely in her mother’s arms is a symbol of the tremendous feelings of love a mother experiences when holding her new child. This figure could suggest a guardian spirit of protection. She could also be comforting to someone who has lost a child; a reminder of the love and caring a mother always feels, regardless of where her child is. I used the word ‘thee’ in the sentiment as an intimate way of talking to an infant. I think the word has a poetic sound and shows reverence and tenderness. It’s the sort of word reserved for someone you love..” –Susan Lordi
A gift to celebrate new babies, new families… and the loving relationship that develops between parent 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.

    I was given my first Willow tree Angel after losing my baby girl during my first pregnancy! My heart was completely broken and my world was shattered. The angel I was given was the the Guardian with a card that read I now had my own guardian angel! It was so thoughtful but so heart breaking as I looked at this figurine holding a baby I longed to have! It sounded so insane not being able to look at this thoughtful gift for that reason! It meant so much to me and now I have it somewhere special in my house!
