The crane is one of the most traditional and iconic figures in Origami. In Japan, it is a mystical and holy creature, believed to live for a thousand years.

Our cranes are folded in such a way as to display the poem title across the top and are accompanied by a tag that contains the entire poem.

Poetry Takes Flight is the collaboration of artist April Zay and poet/lyricist Arlene Geller. One-of-a-kind, handcrafted pieces are designed from handmade artisan paper, integrating original poetry with the delicate art of Origami and découpage.
