The Willow Tree® Angel of Hope Figurine attempts to capture the little spark that can keep us going even in difficult times. As artist Susan Lordi puts it, "I love the idea of lighting a candle for someone, or for a wish, or a thought...keeping it alive, carrying it forward. So this angel is sheltering and protecting a small candle with a little gold-leafed flame. It’s important that the flame is small—sometimes it’s just a little flicker or a fleeting sign that can give you hope."
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. Pieces are cast from her original carvings, and then individually painted by hand. Softly washed colors, carved and metal accents, and representative icons of nature mark Susan's work.
