“It’s the little things we do that make a big difference… This figure holds a native milkweed plant, destined for her garden. Milkweed is the only host plant for the miraculous monarch butterfly. Small acts have a big impact. By planting native species that our birds, bees and butterflies need to survive, we’re doing a little thing to help heal nature. And in so doing, nature heals us with its bounty.” –Susan Lordi
A thank you piece for those who act with kindness toward others, such as volunteers or essential workers; a piece for gardeners, conservationists, those who love monarch butterflies and all aspects of nature.

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.
