"Music is such a huge part of the holidays! One of my favorite things at Christmas is our family Christmas Concert, a tradition started by my dad, a musician. Everyone who plays an instrument, even if only at this time of year, participates. My dad composes little solos for the younger performers so that everyone has a chance to shine. So for me, the Song of Joy is a song of family being together." –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.
