Our Inspiration Story

Rocky Arts Unfolded is an origami focused company founded in 2005 that creates and sells a wide range of origami based products to customers. Lisa B. Corfman’s stable element is origami, her rock, and the company has its name because origami was once her rocky art form.

The story of our logo is now detailed: A mixed-media block illustrating stability in the company’s rock and is the foundation for the official logo. It demonstrates what we stand for. The project began with a 9in x 9in x 1in block of wood, spray mount adhesive and three bags of artist sand (in the colors of maroon, turquoise and dust). First numerous pieces were tested on cardboard adhering sand with spray mount adhesive, then the front side of the 9in by 9in wood block was sprayed and sand was carefully sprinkled, to adhere to the wood. Non-adhering sand was emptied into a mixed leftovers baggie. Additional layers of sand were sprinkled on in the same pattern to both ensure no wood would show through and enhance the rocky look. The whole piece was then scanned and became the diamond shape center of the Rocky Arts Unfolded logo. A computer generated pattern in the sand colors was added to complete the square shaped logo design, making the logo what it is today.

The foundation block now stands as a work of its own; the block and logo was formed in 2008. Adding aesthetics, the artwork now includes a gold colored rock with a small gold crane resting on it, attached to the lower maroon portion of the wooden block. As well, sand was scraped off strategically, from the upper turquoise portion of the artwork, and there was a piece of maroon card stock with gold colored letters adhered, reading “Peace Gives Wings To Healing.” This meaningful message was attached upon the turquoise part of the wood. Rocky imperfections and the delightful beauty of this artwork exemplify the logo’s meaning.

Why: Imperfections or even disabilities make us stronger. Life is a process and though heavy at times, it has a beautiful light. We value disabled people and understand DISABLED to mean “Determined Individuals Striving And Beating Limitations Encountered Daily,” an acronym dating back to 1999 under an organization called the Disability Network. Rocky Arts Unfolded feels that we all begin by feeling disabled. We first, struggle, then blossom, and finally amaze with the final product. Lisa B. Corfman started folding origami, ran into a tough spot and then pursued this diverse artistic practice as a stable rock. Welcome to Rocky Arts Unfolded!
