An Original Design by Susan Lordi

Artist Susan Lordi hand-carved the prototype for this piece in her studio in Kansas City, Missouri. She personally sculpts each new Willow Tree figure to reflect her own experiences and observations of human emotion and relationships. Lordi finds inspiration in the connections between loved ones, believing that these bonds provide meaning in our lives.

In the Heart and Soul sculpture, she aimed to convey the unique friendship between women – how girlfriends can read each other intuitively and support each other unconditionally. The work exudes warmth, affection, and trust thanks to Lordi’s perceptive study of human nature.

Cast from Lordi’s Carving and Hand-Painted

Each Willow Tree sculpture begins as an original carving by Susan Lordi. She does the initial carving from basswood into the detailed three-dimensional form. This prototype is then sent to a casting company to be reproduced in resin.

Some parts, like the hands and faces, are carefully cast from Lordi’s original wood sculpture to preserve the fingerprint ridges and subtle hand-carved details. The resin casting recreates these touches, allowing you to see the mark of the artist’s hand.

Once cast, each sculpture is hand-painted by accomplished painters. Soft gradations of color are added to replicate the look of hand-tinted bisque or terra cotta. The final piece retains the fine details and artistry of Lordi’s initial carving, with a hand-painted style that gives warmth and approachability.

An Intimate Size for Shared Moments

Measuring just 4 inches high, this diminutive sculpture has an intimate feel perfect for sharing quiet moments with a dear friend. The convenient size allows you to display it in more contained settings where its message will be viewed up close, like on a shelf, side table, mantel, or desk.
