Our Willow Tree® "You're the Best" Figurine is a thoughtful way to let someone know how much you appreciate them. A small female angel with airy, wire wings holds a bright red apple in her hands. Artist Susan Lordi spoke about her inspiration: "This piece is all about the apple. I wanted it to symbolize many things, to stand out, be large, delicious, shiny. Obviously, it’s a symbol for teacher appreciation, but the apple is also just a beautiful fruit! A metaphor for good health, for wisdom, for someone chosen for something big...for a special person who always gives the best of her or himself, and makes a difference in the lives of others."
Originally from Kansas City, Missouri, Susan Lordi holds a Master of Fine Arts in Textile Design, and her fiber art has been exhibited internationally. Inspired by dance, art history, nature and personal experiences with family and friends, her figurative sculptures speak in quiet ways to heal, comfort and encourage.
