1000 Cups of Cranes - Week 31

Week 31

This week my sister gave me some really nice material and some origami papers that she had, so I could start working on her crane artworks. So a large portion of this weeks cranes are made from origami paper. Also a few of the cranes were decorated by the Brown Owl craft ladies from Gallery One

On Saturday this week I spent the day making coffee cups inspired by the photos from this blog at Gallery One in Mitcham. It is really interesting going back to the photos I took in the beginning which were just images not influenced by countless other images and the concept of having to find inspiration from the photo for the coffee cup. I feel like the first 500 photos will be inspiring the coffee cups and the second 500 the idea of creating coffee cups are inspiring the photos. 

Until next week may all your cups be delicious and all your cranes fly free. Make sure you register your email if you found a little bit of luck (a crane) or would like to attend the exhibition in March 2015. Register here.

If you have found one of these cranes please keep it until march 2015 when you will be asked to bring it to the exhibition opening night, register your email address HERE so I can send you an invite to the opening night of the exhibition. So your crane can be placed into an artwork at the exhibition.

Thanks, Naomi - the Wonkie One
