“I wanted her to be very quiet, contemplative, calming … to exude a quiet happiness, contentment from within. My mom is the inspiration for this piece. She was a teacher most of her life. And she continues to pursue many, varied interests through reading and learning. She always read to us while we were growing up — and encouraged us to read. With her lifelong love of learning, she continues to open the world — to herself and others.” —Susan Lordi
A gift for graduates, students, teachers, caregivers… or to celebrate special accomplishments.

Our Story
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.
