Hold close that which we hold dear
“This piece can be about the feeling you get from holding a child, or the child can represent something you want to protect ... a person, a memory, a relationship, a dream, a belief. Thus, the sentiment ‘hold close that which we hold dear’ can refer to someone or something tangible — or intangible and ethereal.”
Artist Susan Lordi hand carves the original of each Willow Tree® sculpture. Using family and friends as models, Susan tries to capture a moment in time, or express a feeling.
