Willow Tree is an intimate line of figurative sculpture that speaks in quiet ways to heal, comfort, protect and inspire. Expressions are revealed through gestures only…a tilt of the head, placement of the hands, a turn of the body. Simplicity of form and the absence of facial features signify Willow Tree. Susan Lordi hand carves each original figure before they are carefully reproduced in hand decorated resin to capture her original style and sculpting technique. Susan tries to keep the interpretation of Willow Tree open, hoping to make it more personal, and allowing the individual to decide its meaning.
Close to me - 'Apart or together always close to me.'
CLOSE TO ME "Apart or together, always close to me" The sentiment, ?apart or together, always close to me? applies to any age? a child going away to camp, a teenager leaving for college? the message is the same. The intertwined images carved on the figures? dresses visually echo this sentiment. I understand this piece from both sides ? having been a daughter, and having gone through the experience of raising a daughter to adulthood. I hope both mothers and daughters will connect to the emotions of this piece.
