About this Piece

Music and movement transform this beloved figure. The hand-painted base elevates the figure while it turns beautifully to the classic Pachelbel's "Canon in D Major" that many brides select for their ceremony. As it turns, one can see different interpretations of this figure's pose. “I carved this piece so that it could be viewed ‘in the round’. You get a different understanding depending on how you turn the piece. If you view from the side where you can see the man and woman's arms around each other, it looks like they're kissing. If you turn it and view it from where you can see their faces and clasped hands, it looks like they're dancing — and it's a totally different piece. I like this duality of interpretation.” –Susan Lordi

Willow Tree® by 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.
