May you be blessed with beauty and wonder every day
“I was thinking about making art that reflects the natural beauty all around us—that causes us to change our mood or lift our spirits… For me, beauty found in nature has this transformative power. This figure presents the many small miracles happening all around us. Her open arms are a historical and universal gesture of blessing, both welcoming and inclusive. Her carvings, dotted with gold, of plants, flowers, birds, butterflies, the cycle of seasons, are the everyday earthly blessings that enrich our lives immeasurably. Everyday Blessings could be a gift to celebrate friendship, a love of nature, or be a welcoming presence in the home. She could be placed in the Nativity as an angel, offering her precious gifts, or stand alone as a unique holiday piece.” —Susan Lordi
A celebration of the natural beauty all around us–the small miracles that lift our spirits and enrich our lives. This figure could be a welcoming presence in one’s home, a healing gift to a friend, or an addition to the Nativity Collection.
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.
