Abundance (So Much Love!) - Willow Tree
“I think that a rose is one of the most beautiful natural objects that we can – carefully – hold in our hands. We enjoy the intoxicating scent, the silk-velvet touch, the perfect form. They unfold and give forth their fragrance; they’re intimate and draw you in… So this piece could be a gift to a mother or friend or Valentine, or someone you’re wishing well. Sometimes it’s nice to give a gift to let someone know that they are a gift in your life. I wanted the bouquet to be overflowing – more than enough – to express abundant feelings for someone, or the abundant goodness a person shares with others.” —Susan Lordi

A Tree, A Prayer Angel (May You Find Strength, Beauty and Peace Each Day) - Willow Tree
“A tree can be a metaphor for strength, beauty and peace — qualities we all aspire to. The prayer is one of hope and healing; about living in the moment. The title is as much a prayer as the sentiment. This piece is very open. The tree can be a symbol of anything that is centering and inspirational. Trees are grounding — a connection to that which sustains us. It could also reference the Tree of Life — a universal symbol in many different religions, both Christian and non-Christian.” —Susan Lordi

KINDNESS (GIRL) (Above All, Kindness) - Willow Tree
“I really like the simplicity and truth of this sentiment, Above all, kindness. Kindness is a virtue that gives us so much reward, and one we aspire to.

My Girls (Looking at You, I See Wonder, Joy, Strength) - Willow Tree By Susan Lordi
“This piece was directed by the models. The poses that the girls naturally assumed showed their relationship with their dad much better than I could have instructed them. Their father was the anchor — and the girls fluttered around him. I got a sense of how the girls saw him as strong and reassuring. They looked at him with a ‘my dad can do anything’ look. The dad was clearly having fun being with his daughters. I wanted to make this sculpture a two-way piece — the girls look to his strength and stability, and he looks to them as his greatest source of joy. I think the beauty of a good father/daughter relationship is in its duality. I hope the sentiment can be read from either perspective — father to daughters, or daughter to father.” —Susan Lordi
A gift to celebrate the loving relationships that develop between parent and children.

That's My Dad (My Favourite Time is Time with You) - Willow Tree
"When my son was young, I remember how he craved physical playtime with his Dad—wrestling on the floor, big bear hugs, being silly, running, climbing, jumping; it didn't matter, just that they were together, laughing, spending time in the moment. Years later, I realized all of that physical interaction was a powerful way for dad and son to communicate—and how it formed a strong base of trust and love for a lifetime." –Susan Lordi
A gift to celebrate the loving relationships that develop between parent and child, grandparent and child…

Home (Together, our Family is Home) - Willow Tree
“I wanted to capture the time in your life when there’s a lot of excitement, happiness, yet a big unknown. This piece connects the concepts of Home and Family — you are creating your own family—your own home. There’s been a shift in your life cycle. It’s about establishing roots in a way that centers and grounds you as a couple. It can be scary, but also has you in awe. Together, you’re creating a sense of place—building something—permanence and belonging. To each other and to the someone else that you haven’t met yet, but that you already love. I wanted the title to have a hidden layer of discovery ... I like the twist of taking a noun and using it as an adjective to explain a feeling one might have, but can’t always verbally express.” —Susan Lordi
A gift to celebrate new beginnings, new babies, new families… and the loving relationships that develop between parent and child.

Around You (just the nearness of you) - Willow Tree
“I wanted to sculpt a young couple, finding romantic love – the butterflies and uncertainty, the chemistry and electricity – discovered when you’re in each other’s presence. I wanted the piece to be tender and intimate, elegant and quiet… Since the pose is derived from dance, I also wanted it to appear to have movement as you look at different angles.My challenge was to carve completely in the round, so that from every view, you have a different understanding… you see variations. There’s no correct way to position the piece.There are three touch points – their fingers on both hands, and the tops of their heads. I like this bit of connection… the tingly excitement and shared energy that comes from moments together with a new love.” —Susan Lordi
A wedding, anniversary or Valentine’s Day gift that expresses love and caring.

Chrysalis (Protect and cherish; give wings to fly) - Willow Tree
“A chrysalis is the protective covering in which a caterpillar develops into a butterfly. The title is a metaphor for the relationship between a mother and her teen-age daughter — a time of letting go, in support of emerging independence. A mother’s first response is to protect her child. But the greater gift is to provide the love and trust that helps her daughter find wings to fly. The emphasis on this piece is on the daughter. It’s her emerging, her transformation, her unfolding. The title is illustrative of this particular time of life.” –Susan Lordi
A gift to celebrate supportive friendships among women—mothers and daughters, sisters, best friends, cousins, co-workers, neighbors.

Ever Remember (A flame continues to glow, safe within)- Willow Tree
“I want this piece to be very personal to someone who has lost a loved one. The form is very simple, very pure. I think when someone dies, they’re still a part of you—they haven’t left you. Their essence lives within you and the memories that you shared keep them alive in your heart, like an inner light, a gift that glows from within. You feel it always, and you keep it safe. I hope this figure is a healing reminder, that positive energy and good things will continue to radiate from the spirit of one you love.” –Susan Lordi
A gift to express sympathy, comfort, remembrance and healing.
