“My daughter lives in France, so I’ve traveled there quite a bit in the last few years. I enjoy the art and architecture, the gorgeous countryside, learning the language… It’s truly a culture of romance. So in sculpting this piece about love, I wanted it to have a little more style and mystique… a sophistication, an elegance… I made changes to the dress — extending sleeves and neckline. I love the challenge of starting with a solid, opaque, hard surface, and carving and carving until it looks like embellished lace. Although influenced by France, Je t’aime is a universal piece. The sentiment moves from the universal, to the personal one-on-one. ‘In any language, it’s you I love.'" —Susan Lordi
A birthday, wedding, anniversary, Valentine’s Day gift that expresses love and caring.

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.

    Diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, I wanted to give one last gift to my loved ones. I have chosen to the Willow Tree figurines as they have spoken to my heart and I'm sure they will touch those I love as well. I think this purchase is the 8th or 9th (I've lost count) as I keep thinking of others I want to give to. These figurines are so beautiful and obviously created from the heart. Thank you for touching so many. By the way, I have chosen not to give these while I am still here. I have wrapped each one individually then put them in a wrapped box with a card to whom these gifts go. I want them to know my love will always be with them. Homeward Bound, Cynthia
