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.
Tealight candle holder. Peace on Earth inscribed on the inside of the holder
An embrace of Peace . Willow Tree is excited to introduce a brand-new product for 2009: Candleholders.

We wanted the look to be soft and welcoming; they actually feel warm and tactile - and fit right into your hands. And when they‚?TMre lit, the sentiments literally glow from within. We hope these pieces engage all your senses.A candle can be a symbol a reminder of something ongoing. Candles can bring to light comforting memories ...a wish for someone you love an illumination of your thoughts. Candleholders come boxed, and with a tealight.
