Willow Tree Figurines
Willow Tree figurines are not a certain resemblance exactly; it is a method of expressing emotion… a remembrance of somebody we want to remain in our hearts and minds. We trust that people can identify perceptive representations or gestures of their loved ones, and from that, be able to choose pieces that are distinctively significant for them.
The artist, Susan Lord,i hand-carves the original template of each Willow Tree Figure in her art workshop in Kansas City, Missouri.
Expression is revealed through gestures only.... a bend of the head, positioning of the hands, a turning of the body. The effortlessness of shape and the lack of facial features are indeed a mark of Willow Tree.
We believe this makes a very personal gift and allows the giver to decide the meaning of the emotion to be conveyed
