A crane has been a mystical creature in Asian culture including Japan that is believed to live thousand years. And it represents good health, longevity, and good fortune. Traditionally it is said that if one folded 1000 origami paper cranes, one’s wish would be true. The thousand crane also means hope and healing during challenging time. That’s why I decided to make SAORI cranes in part of the SAORI Worcester’s studio exhibition “Loom in Essence” wishing hope and healing of the world for all of us during thie very challenging time. 

Since I got so many inquiries about the cranes, I am making cranes for sale in 2021. However, my intension to create the wishing cranes is taking a moment to pray for others and the world, which makes our minds a bit lighter. Actual cranes in the exhibition are made by many of the studio members including people who have never made it before.

Ori means weaving in Japanese. Also it means folding. Origami literally means folding paper in Japanese. Ori-ori means woven and folded in this case.
