“Everyone knows somebody that lights up a room when she or he walks in. You’re always happy to see that person — it’s somebody who captures the essence of life — who’s fun to be around — who brings energy and light. Like when the sun comes out! When I’m outside on a cloudy day and feel the sun on my skin, it makes me want to turn my face up to embrace it — just like a sunflower. My sister Karen who helps me on Willow Tree was the inspiration for this piece; she raises my spirits. This piece is for those people who enrich your life every day.”
Willow Tree® is a line of figurines designed by artist Susan Lordi, from DEMDACO. Every piece is done in a rustic style, and features faceless people and angels. They are intended to represent and bring forth feelings, memories, and important life events. Each Willow Tree® piece is cast from Susan Lordi's original carvings in resin, and painted by hand. These figurines capture natural expression and emotions in each gesture. Steeped in sentiment, a gift of Willow Tree® communicates beyond words.
