The Paper Crane, Warren, VT
“I credit my Japanese ancestry for getting me involved with paper folding at an early age. Many hours of my childhood were spent turning sheets of paper into animals, toys and folded gum wrapper chains. As an adult, I was reintroduced to origami in 1983 when I joined a group of folders and made a mobile of 1,000 cranes. This was made in commemoration of Sadako Sasaki (see below) and as a symbol of peace. In 1984, I started selling and teaching origami and spreading Sadako’s story to people at craft fairs, farmer’s markets, craft galleries and gift shops around the country. The Japanese people have a great reverence for paper, and over the years I have discovered a beauty and strength in washi paper, as it supports me throughout my life.”-Miya Cline of The Paper Crane
