Between Folds: Classical Japanese Origami

Más Información

Cleverly transforming a flat square of paper into three-dimensional sculpture through folding and without the use of scissors or glue is a beloved pastime in Japan among both children and adults, dating from the Edo period (1603-1867). Called origami, paper folding produces creations as wide-ranging as a person's imagination: animals, from horses to rabbits; sea creatures, from whales to seahorses; insects, from crickets to butterflies; trees and flower blossoms; figures of geisha and samurai; and even action figures, such as cranes with movable wings. "Between Folds: Classical Japanese Origami" is a pageant of traditional folded paper forms by Tucson origami artist M. Craig. Raised in Japan and America, "M," as she calls herself, holds a degree in Fine Arts and is co-founder of the Tucson Origami Club and has taught Japanese paper-folding techniques throughout the Tucson region since 1996. She has also exhibited at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum and the Tucson Botanical Gardens.
