Announcement   Welcome! All artwork here is hand-made by me, Lisa Shea. Here's a few notes on some of my more esoteric forms of artwork.

CYANOTYPES
Cyanotypes are photograms powered by the sun. They are one-of-a-kind, unique works of art which require pitch darkness at the beginning and warm sunlight at the end. Together, along with gears, leaves, and other items, they create a work of art which is unlike no other.

ORIGAMI
Origami has been treasured for over a thousand years to commemorate special occasions and provide a memento for participants to last a lifetime. Two origami shapes stand out above all others - cranes and flowers. Cranes are symbols of honor, loyalty, long life and joy. Flowers signify romance and love, and bring long-lasting beauty to any room.

My cranes were featured on the 2008 Today Show wedding! Take a look at these photos of the gorgeous set, and learn about the tradition of 1,000 cranes in a wedding!

It is my desire to bring origami sales to every corner of the globe, to spread the fun and joy of origami to any fan of Japanese paper folding! I use only the highest quality of paper, hooks, beads, and threads. Your origami will truly be a work of art. For example, for white origami designs I hand select fine cotton paper and then hand cut it into squares, because I cannot find other origami paper that is lovely enough!

Additional policies and FAQs
Q: How big are your cranes and flowers?
A: The standard size of a piece of origami paper is 6" square. I have an Online Origami Sizing Chart to help you get a sense of how large the cranes and flowers and other items end up being.

Q: What is your background in origami?
I grew up fascinated with feudal Japanese and medieval English cultures. I loved the simple crafts that these times developed - crafts that involved patience, skill, and natural objects to create great beauty. I have been folding origami since childhood and it became a tradition to send out holiday cards with origami objects tucked into each one. People began asking me to fold origami cranes and flowers for their own decorating projects, and it grew from there!
