What Makes Willow Tree the Perfect Christening and Baptism Gift
Willow Tree is synonymous with Christening giftsWhat is the best Christening gift for a baby on their special day? Something thoughtful, useful, and symbolic. A treasured item that the parents can credit as symbolising their child’s baptism. A keepsake that can be cherished for a lifetime. With Willow Tree, you’ll find just that! Willow Tree figurative sculptures were born to life by artist Susan Lordi. Her work is influenced, most significantly, by the healing power of touch. However, it emanates so much more; love, peace, gratitude, strength, and many values and universal truths. To Susan Lordi, bodily gestures are the purest forms of expression. For this reason, all Willow Tree sculptures are etched into existence faceless. As a result, each piece displays the smallest details of human bodily expression. A word from Susan herself: “I’ve always used live models because it’s those little things, those little gestures that you can’t imagine. You could never come up with without observing life”. Every slight tilt of the head, every gentle touch, is captured in her art. She is making her collection timeless and universal. A great gift to celebrate any Christening, and you can find them all here at Gallery Gifts. Stuck for inspiration? See some of our top picks below!
