By my side
From each other, over the years, we gather strength, through laughter and tears.
“I have two sisters—as far back as I can remember, the three of us have always been very connected. Even if they are far away, I feel like they’re always right here, by my side. It’s the little, fun, silly moments—thousands of them—that fill me up when I’m with my female friends, be they sisters, girlfriends, cousins… Shared experiences and laughter form a lifelong reservoir of trust that allows us to be vulnerable around each other. And out of vulnerability comes strength. I know I can count on my sisters and girlfriends whenever I need support… or a good dose of humor.” –Susan Lordi
A gift to celebrate supportive friendships among women—best friends, sisters, co-workers, neighbors.
Willow Tree sculptural art forms beautifully express love, closeness, healing, courage, hope… all the emotions of a life well lived. 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. The simplicity of form and absence of facial features signify Willow Tree. It is Susan’s hope that these pieces be meaningful to both giver and receiver.
