When I was six years old I saw on T.V. a short tutorial of how to make a paper crane. I was so fascinated not only about the final figure, but the delicate process it required.
The channel where I watched the tutorial, also used to show many other designs, which I was able to master with ease, even at that age. But the crane needed more challenging folds and the result was without a doubt a truly elegant, sophisticated figure.
Back in those day, I did not have a way to play the tutorial over and over, so I decided to prepare paper and wait until the play it again. I did not know when this would happen, some times they would play the crane tutorial once or twice a week, but little-me was ready all the time.
It took several weeks and trials until I was finally able to successfully finish it, but after that first challenge, my hands have never stopped creating paper art. My mom still keeps that first crane.
Now, I do not have to wait for tutorials to be played on T.V., here are some of the channels and pages from where the designs.
My collection of paper kept on growing and so did my expertise in paper folding. Now, I mostly specialize in home decoration items, such as flower pots and mobiles. It started as a way to draw a smile in my friends and family, and now I have officially sold my first 3 flower pots. Hoping for expand a little, I decided to open a small company with the help and support of my beloved Gregor.
Origami will always remain my hobby, but I hope I can satisfy your eyes with the folding of my hands.
