“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.”

Close to me
Apart or together, always close to me
“This piece came on strong as my daughter moved to France earlier this year. I will miss her terribly, but at the same time, I am so happy and excited for her. It is a personal message to my daughter, that regardless of whether we’re apart or together, she’s always close to me.
The sentiment applies to any age… a child going away to camp, a teenager leaving for college… the message is the same. The intertwined images carved on the figures’ dresses visually echo this sentiment. I understand this piece from both sides — having been a daughter, and having gone through the experience of raising a daughter to adulthood. I hope both mothers and daughters will connect to the emotions of this piece.”
