New Dad

In awe and wonder of what's to come
"Willow Tree is a reminder of someone we want to keep close, or a memory we want to touch... I like for the viewer to become a participant in the understanding of the piece. It makes it more personal for the giver and the receiver to envision what or whom they want.” –Susan Lordi
A gift to celebrate new beginnings, new babies, new families… and the loving relationship that develops between father 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 just became a dad. He was not able to be at the birth of his child because he is serving in the military. He is still deployed and will not get to hold this precious gift from God yet. I am sending this to the military base as a birthday gift and as a gift for becoming a new dad. Thank you for creating such a memorable figure. Lidia

    I bought this piece for my collection, but it's really for my husband. You see, when we got together I already had a 2 year old son. We always joked about how he got a ready made family, but he's been the best thing to happen to my little boy. I look forward to purchasing other Dad figures. Just recently he and I had our first child together, something he thought he would never get in his life because he thought he wasn't able. He holds that little baby with such love in his heart, and it truly is a thing of wonder to see them together. This piece made him cry when I showed it to him because he said that he truly had everything in his life he could ever want with our family.
