Paper Arts in the Great Northwest
Nikki Cross Applesauce is run by a husband and wife team in Portland, Oregon. Nikki works with origami paper, takes photos, and paints, Jake likes architecture and woodworking. We take pride in making our own original origami paper designs and printing our own paper. We strive for originality, eco-friendliness, and an outlet for all the wild things floating around in our brains. We collaborate all the time, so much that it is hard to even distinguish who first had an idea.
Paper-folding is meditative and instantly gratifying, encouraging endless revision. With an infinity of options, origami teaches us to think openly, and be fearless. All you have to lose is a little piece of paper.
