Song of Joy now turns atop a musical base, playing a well-known melody from the Nutcracker Suite, “March”. The musical format shows off the hand-carved surface and graceful gestures of this angelic dancer.
“The poetry of movement in dance choreography is what inspired the gestures of these two pieces. I covered the surfaces with intricately carved symbols... on Song of Joy, the carvings are more celestial... sun, moon, stars... alluding to rhythmic cycles and seasons.” –Susan Lordi

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.
