About this Piece "I like working with patterning and pierced metal. The wreath has always been a symbol of hospitality and welcome, and this wreath is kind of decorative—it's light and lacy and feminine. The sentiment is light-hearted... It's a little endearment; a way to say thank you, or let someone know she's special." —Susan Lordi
About this Piece "When tulips bloom, they're such a delightful surprise—a harbinger of spring… of longer days, sunshine, outdoor activity, new beginnings and refreshing changes. A bouquet of tulips can be the little surprise gift that lifts one's spirits for no reason at all! —Susan Lordi
About this Piece “I think that a rose is one of the most beautiful natural objects that we can – carefully – hold in our hands. We enjoy the intoxicating scent, the silk-velvet touch, the perfect form. They unfold and give forth their fragrance; they’re intimate and draw you in… So this piece could be a gift to a mother or friend or Valentine, or someone you’re wishing well. Sometimes it’s nice to give a gift to let someone know that they are a gift in your life. I wanted the bouquet to be overflowing – more than enough – to express abundant feelings for someone, or the abundant goodness a person shares with others.” —Susan Lordi
About this Piece "I like the double meaning of the word 'gathering'... of materials to form into a wreath, or gathering together with friends and family. The wide, glossy green leaves of the magnolia tree are a nice change from the evergreen—to express welcome and appreciation." –Susan Lordi
About this Piece “It’s the little things we do that make a big difference… This figure holds a native milkweed plant, destined for her garden. Milkweed is the only host plant for the miraculous monarch butterfly. Small acts have a big impact. By planting native species that our birds, bees and butterflies need to survive, we’re doing a little thing to help heal nature. And in so doing, nature heals us with its bounty.” –Susan Lordi
