Artist Susan Lordi hand carves each original Willow Tree® sculpture. Using family and friends as models, Susan tries to capture a moment in time, or express a feeling. Pieces are cast from her original carving, and then individually painted by hand. Softly washed colors, carved and metal accents, and representative icons of nature mark Susan's work.
"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."
Willow Tree was introduced in January 2000. The line has grown to encompass those sentiments that we most want to express. To our friends, to our family, to our teachers; to those near and dear, to those far away.
The original inspiration for Willow Tree still holds true today: Willow Tree is an intimate, personal line of figurative sculptures representing qualities and sentiments that help us feel close to others, heal wounds, or treasure relationships. Susan Lordi carves each original piece with this thought in mind. Her figures continue to evolve as she identifies emotions so important for us to convey, and renders them in simple, pure gestures. These art forms beautifully express love, closeness, healing, courage, hope... all the emotions of a life well lived.

2010 Snowman Band
Keyboard Ken, Saxophone Joe, Guitar Freddy & Trumpet Tom
Last year, my family LOVED the 2010 Snowman Band. Originally, I had to have the set because I have a High School Marching Band sax player in the house. But the set was a HUGE hit with my daughter and husband as well. We each had our favorite band member and whenever someone walked by, music quickly followed.
I was delighted to see there will be a new member joining the band in 2011...
Trombone Tony will interact with the other members of the Snowman Band. He plays "Joy To The World" and "Good King Wenceslas." Trombone Tony will be available beginning November 4th. I am going to go out on a limb here and guess that he will be difficult to find. So get yours early. (Because he will be most desired by collectors who have the previous 4 pieces and I don't believe those 4 pieces are being re-released I would assume that production numbers will be low for Trombone Tony.)
