Demdaco Willow Tree Around You Figurine - 27182 For Sale
Willow Tree Around You Figurine Message: ...just the nearness of you! Around you is sure to evoke strong emotions. Am intriguing element of this piece is the way Susan carves in the round...there truly is no front or back. Perfect gift for wedding and Valentine's Day or celebration of love on any given day.
"I wanted to sculpt a young couple, finding romantic love - the butterflies and uncertainty, the chemistry and electricity - discovered when you’re in each other's presence. I wanted the piece to be tender and intimate, elegant and quiet... Since the pose is derived from dance, I also wanted it to appear to have movement as you look at different angles."
"My challenge was to carve completely in the round, so that from every view, you have a different understanding… you see variations. There's no correct way to position the piece."
"There are three touch points - their fingers on both hands, and the tops of their heads. I like this bit of connection... the tingly excitement and shared energy that comes from moments together with a new love."
"Willow Tree is not necessarily a likeness, it's a way of conveying emotion... a reminder of someone we want to keep close, or a memory that we want to touch, or see. I hope that people can recognize subtle expressions or gestures of those they love, and from that, be able to select pieces that are uniquely meaningful for them." - Susan Lordi
