Thousands of Cranes

A Thousand Origami Cranes represents hope for a long life in the folding of the cranes, while simultaneously, the acceptance of laws of nature in the firing process. This ritual connotes natural dynamism. Burning the cranes functions to maintain good spiritual circulation. My art work emphasizes purification through firing the porcelain covered paper cranes in the soda kiln: by porcelain surface hinting at the firing process. Viewers participate by replacing a ceramic origami with a new paper origami then they break the ceramic one to engage with the circulation.
