A gift to celebrate the loving relationships that develop between parent and child, grandparent and child? Willow Tree® is a reminder of someone we want to keep close, or a memory we want to touch. Hand-carved figures reveal their expression through body gestures only a tilt of the head, placement of the hands, a turn of the body. Each piece is designed to be open to interpretation from the viewer. Willow Tree® isn’t so much about the tangible piece. It represents an emotion, or it marks a memory. Susan Lordi. A gift of Willow Tree® communicates beyond words.
