About this Piece

For holidays or for everyday, ornaments celebrate life's milestones in a small, commemorative format. This ornament is a smaller-sized version of You're the Best! #26248 with brown elastic cord for hanging. "I wanted the apple to symbolize many things ... to stand out, be large, delicious, shiny. It’s a symbol for teacher appreciation — but the apple is also just a beautiful fruit! A metaphor for good health, for wisdom, for someone chosen for something big ... for a special person who always gives the best of her or himself, and makes a difference in the lives of others.” —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.
