Each original Willow Tree® sculpture is hand carved by artist Susan Lordi. Using family and friends as models, Susan’s goal is to capture a moment in time or express an intimate feeling. Pieces are cast from her original carving and individually painted by hand. Softly washed colors, carved and metal accents, and representative icons of nature add depth and sentimentality to this beloved line.
Dancing through life with laughter.
“This is a happiness piece — movement and dancing connote freedom and joy of life. A lot of little girls go through a ‘high twirl’ stage — when every one of them wants to be a princess or a ballerina — when they seem to float and dance rather than walk. This demonstrative gesture might capture that time. Or, this figure might reflect elements of an adult’s personality — someone we would call a ‘free spirit’. - Susan Lordi
