I always dread hearing the words, “take your time, there’s no rush.” Anytime I hear them directed towards me I tell myself to ignore them, and that I need to get it done as soon as possible. Unfortunately my subconscious doesn’t hear my advice, and my propensity to procrastinate emerges. Such was the case for […]
When I began making mobiles in 2007, I tried to avoid using white paper for any mobiles. Most white paper I had come across yellowed with time, and I didn’t want my customers complaining that their beautiful white mobile had turned yellow after two or three months. When customers requested an all white mobile I […]
What mother doesn’t need five minutes of peace at least once a day? It’s not much to ask for, but when you have a new baby, and especially if this new baby is not your first child, then these five minutes can prove to be quite elusive. My mother once told me that when […]
Welcome to The Timeless Crane…
Thank you for taking the time to visit my website and see my art. Here you’ll find many pictures of my handmade hanging origami mobiles, especially my most popular mobiles – the Paper Crane Mobiles. There is even a gallery page where you’ll find video clips so you can see how the mobiles move, and get a better idea of what they’re like.
I have engineered the mobiles so that each level is free to swivel a full 360° with the slightest breeze. Whether you have a fan in the room, or an open window, or maybe the heat is on, whatever might stir the air will cause the origami to dance. Even when there is no breeze, the mobile is in constant kinetic motion.
There is a page where you can order your very own hanging origami mobile, or order one as a gift for a friend. These mobiles provide a great way to accent a room in your home, liven up an office or provide a way for you to relax at work, decorate a child’s bedroom, or turn a nursery into a magical place. Babies are fascinated by the complexity of these mobiles and the way they move. Rather than having a simple plastic mobile that always rotates in one direction, your baby could be gazing up at a collection of intricately folded paper models that move freely in any direction.
The slightest breeze can make the origami models in your mobile dance. Watching the origami paper mobile in motion is so relaxing and intriguing – leaving anyone guessing the path the models will take next. Every knot I tie is a double knot, and every knot is reinforced by clear drying glue. I only use spring tempered stainless steel wire that holds it’s shape and remains brilliant over the years. Every mobile I make is a one of a kind and a unique design. I cannot consider a mobile to be completed until it is perfect, so you always get a product of highest quality and superb craftsmanship.
