For holidays or for everyday, ornaments celebrate life's milestones in a small, commemorative format. This ornament is a smaller-sized version of Thank You #27267 with brown elastic cord for hanging. “'Thank You' is an expression we use daily… from an impersonal quick comment to a more heart-felt appreciation of support from parents, family, friends, teachers, volunteers. The gesture of the figure, leaning forward, is an offer of gratitude and hospitality. The flowers are classic, timeless peonies, which release a beautiful fragrance, and whose lifecycle can span generations.” —Susan Lordi
An expression of friendship, gratitude and appreciation for teachers,caregivers, volunteers, donors, petsitters, friends… or for those who love flowers!
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.
