Mother and Son

Celebrating the bond of love between mothers and sons
“I was thinking about the relationship between a mother and a son of about nine or ten — that certain age when boys start fiercely asserting their independence — and resisting hugs and kisses from their mothers. And yet, at the same time, secretly needing and wanting them. I wanted this sculpture to express that push and pull.  Liking the touch but at the same time, pulling away.” —Susan Lordi
A gift to celebrate 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.

    My son is 23 years old now and currently serves in the United States Airforce. He is my only child. Seeing this figurine reminds me of our relationship and the years as he was growing up. I'm so proud to be called his mom.
