Willow Tree - Mother and Son
Celebrating the bond of love between mothers and sons
“I was thinking about the relationship between a mother and a son of about nine or ten — that certain age when boys start fiercely asserting their independence — and resisting hugs and kisses from their mothers. And yet, at the same time, secretly needing and wanting them. I wanted this sculpture to express that push and pull. Liking the touch but at the same time, pulling away.” —Susan Lordi
A gift to celebrate the loving relationship that develops between parent and child.

Willow Tree® is an intimate line of figurative sculptures that speak in quiet ways to heal, comfort, protect and inspire. Artist Susan Lordi hand carves the original of each figure from her studio in Kansas City Missouri. Pieces are cast from her original carvings, and individually painted by hand. Expression is revealed through gestures only… a tilt of the head, placement of the hands, a turn of the body.
“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…” Susan Lordi
