Perhaps you have seen one of my paper crane mobiles or collaged picture frames or maybe you simply stumbled upon this site in search of a unique, hand-crafted gift. Whatever the route, your destination has now been revealed: welcome to the world of the Crane Crafter!


Taking advantage of a lifelong collecting habit, I incorporate traditional Japanese





origami papers into creations I make using

vintage maps, sheet music, illustrated dictionaries & encyclopedias, whimsical drawings & etchings, wrapping paper scraps and all manner of paper treasures. A true scavenger, I leave nothing to waste in the hope it may serve in some way toward helping me construct my mobiles & other inventions. I hope you find what you might be looking for.
