Demdaco Willow Tree hand-carved sculptures speak in quiet ways to heal, comfort, protect and inspire. Susan Lordi identifies emotions so important for us to convey, and renders them in simple, pure gestures. About Demdaco Willow Tree, Susan says, "I try to keep the interpretation of Demdaco Willow Tree open. I hope this makes it more personal, and allows the viewer to decide its meaning."
Message: "You will always have my heart"
Inspiration - Susan's explanation of the inspiration and creative process behind specific sculptures: You will always have my heart - Introduced January 2005
"Heart of Gold was inspired by a young cancer patient, Scott Kristopher Innes, at Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City. "Scott's boundless and positive energy reflected on those all around him, and as a result, good things continue to radiate from his spirit," artist Susan Lordi says of Scott, son of her good friends Barb and Bob Innes."
"His courageous spirit and kind smile showed me how one little heart of gold can continue to bring so much love, joy and comfort to others. It is my hope that this figurine expresses the pure and honest affection between a child and those who love and care for him."

Susan Lordi's art reflects our relationships with people and the world around us. Her keen observation of the human form is further inspired by ballet, modern dance, nature, and her personal experiences with family and friends. These influences are revealed in her Willow Tree® sculptures, from which emotion is communicated through gestures only.
Besides her work in sculpture, Susan has always loved making art with cloth. She has a Master of Fine Arts in Textile Design, and her fiber art has been exhibited internationally. A monograph of her art textiles has been published in the Portfolio Collection by Telos Art Publishing and she is featured in the book Art Textiles of the World: USA. Susan maintains a studio in Kansas City, Missouri.
