About this Piece

"This piece is very much about healing. Her gesture is protective. While carving the relief pattern on her dress, I just kept carving... I wanted to push the message further, so I kept going, surrounding her with nature and everyday objects—metaphorical of a life well lived. The carved icons reflect our connections to those we love. Our story is one we share with others, all woven together, as in a tapestry. When we lose someone special, our shared experiences and memories become all the more precious to us." –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.
