“I wanted her to be very quiet, contemplative, calming … to exude a quiet happiness, contentment from within. My mom is the inspiration for this piece. She was a teacher most of her life. And she continues to pursue many, varied interests through reading and learning. She always read to us while we were growing up - and encouraged us to read. With her lifelong love of learning, she continues to open the world - to herself and others." - Susan Lordi.
Willow Tree is an intimate, personal line of hand carved sculptures. Each represents a quality or sentiment that helps us feel close to others, heal wounds, or treasure relationships to living things. Expression is revealed through gestures only... a tilt of the head, placement of the hands, a turn of the body. Each piece is cast from the artist's (Susan Lordi) original carving and then painted by hand. Susan says, "I try to keep the interpretation of Willow Tree open. I hope this makes it more personal, and allows the viewer to decide its meaning."
Resin, hand painted. 11cm high.
