About this Piece

“I carved this piece directly from my memory of time spent with my own grandmother. Sitting down with her, holding her hand, turning her wedding rings, asking questions about her life and listening to her stories. I’ve always been interested in oral history and the passing down of stories from one generation to the next. I think learning from those who have come before us helps define who we are – it grounds us. Their story is our story.” —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.
