Now and for always, I carry you in my heart
“I wanted this pose to evoke a feeling of being completely in the present with your child—the weight, the scent, the feel… sharing with each other the silent vow that you will be there for always. The months of infancy are like none other, maybe because you feel the baby is still part of you… baby and mother still as one, nothing can come between. The essential promise that a mother makes to her child, to love and protect forevermore, is unconditional.” –Susan Lordi
A gift to celebrate new beginnings, new babies, new families… and the loving relationships that develop between parent and child, grandparent and child…
About Willow Tree®
Willow Tree® is an intimate line of figurative sculptures that speak in quiet ways to heal, comfort, protect and inspire. 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.
