Willow Tree Nativity
A lot of my friends love to collect Willow Tree figurines! They are also really popular gifts to give to family and friends. They are created by Susan Lordi and she says her inspiration comes from a love of family, friends, and nature. The Willow Tree Nativity set is simply beautiful! Lordi captures the simplicity of the nativity but there is a lot of details in the pieces! The angels have such a quiet elegance to them. You can purchase the entire set or just individual pieces.

Why Do Willow Tree Figurines Have No Faces?
The artistic approach of Lordi’s designs has an elegant and simple look to them. The reason that the figurines do not have faces is she wants the person looking at them to imagine and envision themselves or others as the figurine. She has said “This ties into the viewer becoming more of a participant in the understanding of the piece. It makes it more personal for the giver and the receiver to envision what or whom they want…It’s the perfect example of ‘less is more’ – what is missing can speak volumes. Simplicity of form is one of my guidelines.” The Willow Tree Figurines are about expressing emotions and feelings.
How to Clean my Willow Tree Figures?
If you are going to invest in Willow Tree Figurines then you will want to take proper care of them. These figures are painted with waterbased paint so you do not want to use water or a wet cloth to clean them! The best way to clean them is to dust with a dry brush or gentle soft cloth.
I am looking forward to Christmas and love displaying our nativity set! The simplicity of the Willow Tree Nativity set can be a signature piece to your holiday decorations. It would also make an awesome gift to a Willow Tree fan! Do you have this set? How much do you love it?
