Each day, unexpected blessings
Blessings – Willow Tree figurine Susan Lordi
This is intended as a universal piece of goodwill… her hairstyle and gold-flecked hair band suggest an aura of celebration and specialness. Blessings is a little reminder to count our blessings every day. She speaks to any denomination or ethnicity. She celebrates the richness of diversity in our culture.” – Susan Lordi
The original inspiration for Willow Tree still holds true today: Willow Tree is an intimate, personal line of figurative sculptures representing qualities and sentiments that help us feel close to others, heal wounds, or treasure relationships. Susan Lordi carves each original piece with this thought in mind. Her figures continue to evolve as she identifies emotions so important for us to convey, and renders them in simple, pure gestures. These art forms beautifully express love, closeness, healing, courage, hope… all the emotions of a life well lived.
The sculptures are rendered so as to suggest elegance, simplicity, peace and serenity. Forms reveal their expressions through body gestures only… a tilt of the head, placement of the hands, a turn of the body. Emotions are left to the viewer to discern, which makes them personal and powerful. Willow Tree is an understated line that speaks in a compelling way.
